Amour's story

Amour is 50 years old. He lives with Vilma, with whom he has three children. The family lives in a house that is rustic, but their own. It is located in a native community in Cabisera 2.

Amour is a farmer. He learned this activity when he was 20 years old. At his young age he had already worked on his parents' land. This is how he learned about the activity with which he now supports his family. He also does construction work such as bricklaying.

In the two plots of land that he owns, Amour grows corn and rice, but now he wants to increase his production by outfitting another plot of land. He is hoping for financial help in order to plant corn and rice.

With the money he is now requesting, he will purchase corn, rice and bags of organic fertilizer in order to start planting in a field.
