View original language description ↓
Wilmer is a young man who, from a very young age, did agricultural work. He always loved to help in his father's small fields until he acquired his own land which he is now dedicated to farming; when harvest season arrives he is completely focused on the harvest of his produce. Wilmer also possesses a store in which his sister works when Wilmer is giving his land the care needed to grow excellent produce. This is why he has asked his sister to temporarily man the little store. When we asked about Wilmer, people commented that he wishes very much to improve his workspace and stock the store with better products because it is the only one in the area and serves the whole community.

Translated from Spanish by Donna Yates, Kiva volunteer.
