Edwin Enrique
Edwin is a man who is very responsible to his family obligations and is known for providing the best for his children. He lives with his wife and son, is a very hard worker, and has always worked with glee and enthusiasm. He is a farmer and raises corn and millet. When his harvest if ready, he stores it in the barns that are shown in the photograph so that he can later sell it. Edwin wants to increase his sales so he is asking for a loan which will allow him to buy seeds, compost, fertilizers, pesticides, and other things. He also wants to be able to pay for labor. He is hoping for the help he is requesting because he has no other source of income. This will allow him to continue providing for his family without limitations.
