Hermenegildo
View original language description ↓
Hermenegildo is 53 years old, living with his wife and three minor children. He has grown vegetables for more than 40 years, which he fertilizes and waters every morning. His small plots are close to his home, which helps him to care for them patiently. This work takes all day, but because it is close to his home it is not too difficult to care for them. This pleases him because he has more time to spend with his family and his children. The hard part is transporting the products into the cities, because of the scarcity of buses that get to his community. Hermenegildo gets most of his enthusiasm and will to keep going from his family.

He will invest the money in the purchase of seeds and plants, in order to increase his production and therefore his income.

Lo difícil es trasportar estos productos a las ciudades, por los escasos carros que llegan a su comunidad.
