They live in Nueva Esperanza, a small community some 20 kilometers from the Bolivian town of Santa Rita. Bacilio is a farmer and he owns 7 hectares of good agricultural land. He raises livestock, as well: 2 cows and 3 pigs. To earn extra money, he makes coal for fuel. Bacilio is one of the directors of the local cooperative and he is known and respected in the community. He will use the money to grow maize. He will hire laborers to prepare and plant the crop and, at the harvest, sell the crop at the local market.
