Fredy's story

Fredy, 29, is a single man who cares for his parents; he lives with them in their own house. Fredy works in agriculture and despite difficulties he might have with the crops he enjoys working in the fields. His main activity is growing potatoes. He heads out to his farm plots every morning to care for his crops diligently especially because of the constant illnesses they are susceptible to because of the local climate.

He’s been in this activity for 8 years which has been sufficient time to become knowledgeable about planting cycles thus obtaining the best possible sales in the wholesale market in the city where he lives. He plans later on to buy his own farmland; he’s sure to earn higher income this way.

Despite his main inconvenience consisting in not having sufficient economic resources and he being the only source of support for his family, he nonetheless works quite diligently to attain his goal. Fredy will use the 1,000 soles to buy organic manure to nourish his crops.
