Nemecio
Mr. Nemecio V., works in agriculture and raising cattle in the community of Londo, Capinota province in Santivañez. This is a rural locality far from the urban part of the province of Cochabamba. Mr. Nemecio lives with his two children, Carmen and Hugo, 15 and 10 years old respectively. He is married, but his wife has been living in Argentina. They lost contact six months ago due to family problems.

Nemecio has four head of cattle, which with his children's help has provided them with sustenance. They also grow carrots, onions, corn, and potatoes which they sell at the market in Santivañez. Carmen and Hugo study at the high school in Santivañez; they are very dedicated and responsible children that have made their father proud. They provide their father with emotional support and support in the home.

Nemecio hopes to see his children graduate from high school and go on to University. Carmen is finishing his second year of high school and hopes to study to be a veterinarian at the University. Carmen is at an age when she needs a mother's support, but she is learning to cope without her mother.

He has acted as father and mother for the last six months, and though it has not been easy he is doing well. Nemecio is applying for a loan to purchase at least one more head of cattle and cattle feed. This way we will be able to generate more income which he can use to support his children's studies.
