Fernando Wladimir's story

In the community of Chapues, Fernando lives with his daughter and his partner. He has been a country man all his life, so doing agricultural activities is not difficult for him. It is an everyday job that he does with much love and dedication, Fernando works raising milk and seba cows and as a laborer. This represents a very important source of income to be able to help his humble home get ahead. Fernando needs some dairy cows since the ones he has are already in his their third birth and their milk production is smaller, which is not enough to cover the daily liters that he sells to the milkman. This is why he is requesting help again from the organization.
