Armando
View original language description ↓
Armando es un hombre de 46 años, quien vive con su esposa y sus tres hijos de 22, 19 y 5 años.
Él es una persona muy trabajadora, que desde siempre se dedicó a la agricultura, sembrando diversas variedades de productos agrícolas; y por ahora está dedicado a la producción de verduras, durante esta temporada, sale de mañana de su hogar rumbo a sus lejanas chacras, para limpiarlas, regarlas y sobre todo abonarlas debidamente, lo que le toma largas horas de arduo trabajo.Para Armando este trabajo es muy duro, pero pierde las ganas de realizarlo porque se siente bien y está en compañía de sus animales, trabaja alegremente a pesar de la amenaza del incremento del costo de los abonos, lo que en algunas ocasiones perjudicó sus sombríos, por no tener el dinero necesario.
Invertirá el dinero en la compra de abono para que su cosecha sea buena, y así ir mejorando la calidad de sus productos, y transportarlos cuidadosamente a las ciudades para su comercio.

Armando is a 46 year old man, who lives with his wife and three children who are 22, 19 and 5 years old. He is a very hard-working person who has always been a farmer who plants different varieties of agricultural products. For now he harvests vegetables; during this part of the year he leaves his home in the morning and goes to their remote fields to begin cleaning, watering and especially fertilizing which takes long hours of hard work. For Armando this work is very difficult, but he does not lose the desire to do so because he likes the feeling of being in the company of his animals and work happily regardless of the threat of increased cost of fertilizers. This has sometimes hampered their planting since they did not have the money necessary to buy fertilizers. He will invest the money in buying fertilizer to ensure that his harvest is good, and thus to improve the quality of their products, and transport them carefully to cities for their trade.
