Agricultores De Tzucubal Group's story

José (in the blue t-shirt in the photo) is the leader of the "Agricultures de Tzucubal" group. He is 50 years old and has six children: two boys and four girls. They live in the Tzucubal village in the municipality of Nahualá, in the Sololá department. José is a farmer and works growing corn, coffee and peas on his plot of land in the village. He does this work because it earns him enough money to support his family. He has been doing this work for over 35 years.

José is applying for a loan in order to buy fertiliser for his corn crops.

His dream is to improve his house so that he can give his children better living conditions.

In this group: José , María
