Luis Ponciano
View original language description ↓
Luis is 27 years old and lives with his parents. He is a young man who devotes all his vitality and youth to farming and is a very important contributor to the economy of his family. For 8 years, he has worked independently planting potatoes, corn, beans and peas. Luis’s work process is to first to prepare the land and pour the fertilizer. Then, he sows the seed, usually with plows and then later care for his plants through fertilizer, and if necessary, fumigation. Thus, Luis ensures that the crop yields good results as a reward for their daily effort. He acknowledges that, in recent years, agriculture is not being rewarded by the low prices being offered in the market, but this does not discourage him because he wants to continue on.



His constant motivation is continuing the same production being done, so that his family and his future have a good solvency.
