Hilarion's story

Hilarion is 53-years-old and has been married for more than 30 years. They live in the community of Chullpani Grande towards southern Colomi. They know how to read and write. They have two small children, a humble family. Hilarion works in transport service in the Sindicato de Autotransporte Mixto (Mixed Transport Union) with a route from Colomi to Cochabamba to back. They are also farmers. Every year they sell 70 loads of potatoes, 80 loads of hay, 10 of ulluco, 10 of another tuber. Mostly his wife works growing on two hectares of land inherited from her parents. She hires temporary employees for land preparation, planting, cultivation labors, and harvesting. This way, they get economic resources to maintain their family. Hilarion tells us that that he had construction done on the two-story house. They invested all the savings they had but they don't have money for the fine workmanship. With this opportunity, they will have a comfortable home to live more happier with the two children who are still with them.
