Edgar's story

Edgar has become the only breadwinner in his family following his marriage. His wife does not work, since she is taking care of their five-year-old daughter. Now Edgar is unemployed, but he is engaged in agriculture and farming. He has a private plot of land where he cultivates tomatoes, haricots, plums and also keeps four pigs and four piglets. As agriculture is the only source of income for Edgar, running and expanding his farm is very important to him. He is asking a loan to buy seeds and fertilizer, which is very important for the successful cultivation of the land. The loan will also be used to purchase forage for feeding the pigs. The loan will be a great financial support for Edgar, as he will be able to enlarge his farm and gather more income for the family. Edgar hopes Kiva lenders will support him in developing his agricultural activities.
