Jorge Patricio's story

Jorge is 39 years old. He lives in a small community called Palmira on the northern coast of Ecuador. He belongs to the Awa nationality. They are indigenous to the area. He has seven children, who are going to school. Jorge works in agriculture. He plants fruits and vegetables for his home and to sell.
