Edwin Julian's story

This is Julián. He is 40 years old and lives with his partner and two young children in the community of Estrellita. There, he and his partner worker growing all types of products that grow well in that area.

When he was 14 years old Julián learned this work through going out as a day laborer with his father and siblings. There, little by little, he learned how to prepare the land to sow, and how to protect the plants from weeds. He then ventured out to plant on his own. He has now been farming for over 20 years, growing potatoes, beans and peas.

Julián is currently growing potatoes. He is seeking a loan to buy agricultural supplies that will allow him to keep his potatoes healthy in order to obtain more income from them.
