Santiago C. lives in Villanueva where he has been a sesame farmer for several years. He has managed to make home improvements, which have been of benefit to his three, school-age, children, by providing them with a proper home in which to live.
He rises very early to go to his fields and tend to his crops. His wife is an elementary school teacher who starts her work day at 7am.
Currently, Santiago is asking for funding to invest in his sesame crops so that his harvest will be good and he can continue to improve his children's living conditions.
