Emigdio's story

Emigdio, 47, is married and has two children who are adults living independently. Emigdio is very well-loved and respected where he lives because of his dedication to work. There are days when he must work as an agricultural laborer to earn a few more pesos to bring daily bread home.

Emigdio works alone since his children have forgotten about their parents from the moment they decided to leave home and work in other lines of work far from their community; he gets no economic help from them.

So as not to neglect his land, Emigdio sacrifices whatever he must to keep cultivating it and living from what he most likes to do which is agricultural production. This is why he’s asking for a loan to buy seeds, chemical fertilizer and other farm supplies to improve production. He works on his small parcel of land where he lives and hopes to improve his income and give his family a better quality of life.
