Candelario's story

Candelario is 70 years old and he never studied due to the poverty he lived in during his childhood. He lives with his wife who takes care of the household and their children who are already of age.

Candelario has been making a living with agriculture for more than 50 years, since he was very young his father had taught him to work. Currently he owns an agricultural parcel where he sows corn.
