Cristian Patricio's story

Cristian is a 30-year-old man who is from the parish of Maldonado, where he is in a common-law marriage with his partner and his two young children are going to school.

As an agricultural zone, the first thing the little ones learn here is how to care for the plants and tropical fruits they produce. It is in this way that, from a very young age, Cristian learned the work of the fields and later, at the age of 14, began to work as a day laborer on the neighbors' crops in the area, getting the necessary experience with which to undertake his own crops.

He wants to see a good yield, but for this he needs working capital, since he needs to purchase soil amendments, fertilizers, work tools, and other agricultural supplies, and to pay laborers to harvest. In this way, he hopes to get a good yield and profitability from his harvests.
