Marcos
Marcos, 59 years of age, is married to Rosa and together they live with their daughter, aged 15, while their other children are now independent. They own their own house, located in an agricultural community. Marcos dedicates himself to agricultural activities. “I have some 30 years in agriculture,” he mentions, and “I have experienced many things, good and bad, but everything teaches you something.”

He cultivates green peas, potatoes, and gladiola flowers principally, and he also grows corn and cabbage, but in smaller quantities. His immediate goal is to open a store with his son to sell components for irrigation systems. For the present, he is focused on planting more peas and corn.
