Leonardo's story

46-year old Leonardo has been married to Sra. Antoliana Areco Aquino for twenty years. They have three children aged 19, 17, and 15 years. Leonardo used to be in charge of the gardens at a state enterprise. Then one day he decided to rent a piece of land and sow garden plant seeds. Once they had grown, he would sell them to the business where he was working.

Approximately nine years ago he decided to leave the business and devote himself full-time to the plant nursery. Leonardo and his whole family now work there all the time.

His greatest wish is to continue expanding the nursery and also to have enough money for his children to finish university.
