Marcelo
Marcelo is 63 and separated. His only son lives in Italy, and he lives with his tenants in his house. When he was young he worked in the mine, and once he retired he thought about growing potatoes to keep himself busy.

This work fills him with joy, so he works slowly and calmly tilling his parents' land. Every day he gets up at 5 in the morning to calmly prepare his food, and at around 10 or 11 in the morning starts his farm work. After he harvests, he sorts the potatoes and keeps them in his storage building, so that when the seed potato buyers seek him out, he can sell them at a good price. Marcelo will spend the 1500 soles to purchase organic fertilizer to nourish his crops.
