Darwin Jacinto's story

24-year-old Darwin lives with his partner. She does the housework and looks after their three children, Heidy (7) and Stephania (5), who go to local schools, and 1-year-old Neymar, who stays with his mother. 10 years ago, Darwin began keeping and feeding pigs and then selling their offspring to generate income to cover basic household needs. He needs the money to build a pigsty to protect the new pigs against the cold so they do not become ill and die. This will enable him to boost his income and use it to feed and educate his children. His ambition is to extend his business.
