Felix
Félix is 45 years old, he is married and he has 7 children whom he cares for with deep love and affection in the house he bought 17 years ago. He lives in a secluded area, blessed with beautiful landscapes as well as rich soils. He started his path on agriculture since he was very young, taking advantage of the good quality if the lands. He presently counts on a 5-years’ experience in planting broad beans, peas, potatoes and corn; he cares for his crops constantly because they need the proper nourishment to obtain good quality products. Being able to watch products growth on his land is what he mostly likes about his job; what he doesn't like are the constant changes in market prices, as at times he doesn’t know whether he will earn a good income. However, this does not discourage him because on top of counting on fixed customers in the wholesalers’ market of his town, he has also started breeding small animals such as pigs and chickens, which he sells for a good price after having fattened them. Félix will invest the 2500 PEN in the purchase of manure to feed his crops.

Félix, de 45 años de edad , está casado y tiene 7 hijos a los que cuida con mucho amor y cariño en la casa que compraron hace 17 años.La zona donde habita, es un paraje alejado, que aparte de poseer un buen paisaje tiene tierras muy fértiles. Desde muy joven comenzó su camino por la agricultura, aprovechando las cualidades de la tierra. Ya tiene 5 años de experiencia en los sembríos de habas, alverja, papa y maíz, los cuales cuida constantemente, ya que necesita de los nutrientes necesarios para poder adquirir productos de calidad. Lo que más le gusta de su trabajo es poder ver crecer los alimentos de la tierra, pero le molesta las variaciones constantes que existe en el mercado, por lo que a veces no sabe si obtendrá buenas ganancias. Pero eso no lo desanima ya que comenzó con la crianza de animales menores como chanchos y gallinas, los cuales vende a buen precio después de engordarlos. Además de tener compradores fijos en el mercado mayorista de la ciudad.Félix, invertirá los S/.2500 soles en la compra de abono orgánico para nutrir sus sembríos.
