In the future, they hope to be able to finish constructing a ditch, because each winter all their houses are flooded. They have dedicated 29 years to farming and the main problem they have encountered over all these years is the rising price of products. This raises greatly the cost of farm production and, for that reason, Santos has solicited a loan to better maintain this year's production.
All this hard work is aimed at achieving an objective, which is to achieve the legalization of their lands. They have overcome much by being a very united and responsible family.
