Edmundo


A loan of $500 helped to buy six bags of manure and to pay the rent on two hectares of land.


Edmundo's story

Edmundo is 68 years old and completed up to third grade at school. He is married; his wife is a housewife. The couple's children no longer live at home and so Edmundo's wife is the only one who depends on him.

Edmundo works in farming, something that he has done all his life. Edmundo cannot do any other work as where he lives there is very little water in the summer and it is difficult to grow vegetables. It is also difficult to find land to rent for sowing crops.

Edmundo needs this loan from "Credi Campo" in order to buy six bags of manure and to pay the rent on two hectares of land where he will grow crops. Without a loan it will be very difficult for Edmundo to work.

Edmundo's dream is to have a place to work and to have the means to fertilise his land so that he has good crops. Edmundo knows that he will able to prosper with this loan.
