Filemon's story

Filemón, 36, lives with Simona. The family works in agriculture which is their source of income; they grow potatoes, lima beans, oca [a tuber]. They rotate their crops in a 1.5 hectare parcel of farmland he inherited from his parents and part of it of his own. They have quite a bit of experience managing crops, fertilizing them, harvesting and merchandising. They live in the community of Cotani Bajo Churú, 48 kilometers from the city of Cochabamba. Filemón needed money to buy building materials (brick, cement and roofing tiles, among others). Their house is very precarious and Filemón comments that now he will build and have a new, comfortable house with all basic services.
