A loan of $1,600 helped to buy agricultural supplies (manure and sprinklers).


Edwin Andrés's story

Edwin, who is 21, continues the business which he inherited from his father. He works in agriculture, growing tree tomatoes and papas criollas (yellow potatoes) in a district of the municipality of Sonsón, in the west of Antioquia department. He sells his produce in the municipality's marketplace. He dreams of expanding his production capacity and improving his quality of life and so he is seeking a loan to buy agricultural supplies such as manure and sprinklers for his crop. This will enable him to boost his yield and improve his sales. He dreams of going to university and becoming a successful entrepreneur.
