Humberto is 32 years old, single and currently lives with his parents, but economically he is independent. He earns a living farming two hectares of land, which is his inheritance from his parents. He produces potatoes, olluco [a type of tuber] and broad beans, with crop rotation. He has a lot of experience in this field. The community of First Toncoli is 51 km from the city of Cochabamba.
