Nicanor's story

Nicanor is a hardworking and admirable 57 year-old man. Along with his wife, Natividad, he cares for his nine children with love and care. Out of the nine, four live with them in a rustic house that he built many years ago. Since he was very young, he has been working in the same occupation as his parents, farming. He has been farming for the past thirty years. During this period he has worked to obtain his own agricultural land where he grows potatoes, beans, Peruvian potatoes, carrots and gladiolas. After a lot of effort, dedication and hard work he sells his products in the wholesale market in the capital of his country. This is where he gets the best price. As a good man of the countryside, Nicanor also works as a dairyman. He has eight cows. Every day he milks them and he uses the milk to make cheese. He sells the cheese to small merchants who visit his area. He constantly has to care for and vaccinate his animals. He is glad he lives in the countryside. He is working to improve his crop production and thereby increase his profits. Nicanor will use 3000 soles to buy organic fertilizer for his crops and feed for his animals.
