Elber is a young man of 19. He is single and lives with his parents at the moment. He is, however, financially independent. He works in agriculture, growing potatoes, locoto chillies and pumpkins, in rotation, on 2 hectares of land, which is an inheritance of his parents. He has a lot of experience in this business. The community of Corani Pampa is 72 km away from Cochabamba. Elber needs urgent funds to buy agricultural supplies, organic fertilizer and agricultural chemicals. The chilli fields need to be fertilized and treated with pesticides to guarantee enough food and secure their financial security. Elber paid his savings to his father as an advance on the land. Later he will build his own house and start a family, which is one of his dreams.
