Dionicio, 29, works in agriculture. He grows potatoes in the same community where he lives. Due to life’s circumstances he went to Argentina in order to earn higher income because it’s possible to save a bit that way and finish building his house and offer his children better living conditions and a slightly improved status or standard of living.

He is quite humble and unassuming. Thanks to his and his wife’s efforts they were able to buy a house. In addition, his parents-in-law help them by lending them the farmland he can plant on once a year which insures part of his income. He spends six months a year in this activity and as mentioned above spends the other half year in Argentina.
