Nasario's story

Sr. Nasario is 30 years old and has been married to Sra. Edilfreda for seven years. They both have an elementary school education. Nasario has two dependent children and lives with his family in the town of Mosoj Rancho-Cadelaria, which is north of Colomi.

Sr. Nasario and his wife are farmers who generate income by selling potatoes, beans, and oca (a root vegetable grown in the Andes) produced on the land that he inherited from his parents. They rotate their crops according to the season. Nasario also provides passenger transportation services from the community of Candelaria to Colomi on Thursdays and Sundays, which are the days when the fairs are held.

Don Nasario wants to build a kitchen, but his savings are being invested in farming supplies. He and his wife say that they are pleased to be striving toward a better future ahead of them.
