He is a member of the Avanza Communal Bank, whose members work in agriculture. They all live in the rural community of Aguas Frías, where most of them were raised. The majority of them make their living in agriculture and livestock.

With the help of the loan, he will be able to continue increasing his crops. The purchases will be made in the city of Mocache. The challenges he faces are pests and bad weather.

His dream is to have a car. In his free time, he likes to care for his family.
