A loan of $850 helped to buy seeds, fertilizers, fungicides and insecticides.

Luis Edwin's story

Luis is 34 years old. He has worked in farming since his childhood. Thanks to his father, he learned about agriculture, an activity that today is the source of support for him and his family.

Right now he has crops of a local variety of potatoes and capira potatoes. He is seeking a financing source to buy pea and bean seeds which will help him expand his variety of production, as well as fertilizers, fungicides and insecticides. He hopes that this investment will allow him to generate more earnings which will be reflected in his wife and children's quality of life.

His biggest dream is to see his children, aged eight and six, have good educational opportunities. For this he works hard in order to guarantee them access to education and recreation.
