Julian's story

Don Julian has been married for 12 years and has one child. He is from the department of Tarija. He is by nature pleasant, hard-working, a homebody, and very responsible. Fifteen years ago he came to this area in search of a better life. He currently lives in Puerto Aurora. He started working on the local farms as a day labourer. Bit by bit he saved up and bought a piece of land in Puerto Aurora. He later bought a plot of agricultural land where he and his wife produce bananas. He tells us that now, with the experience he has acquired, he wants to increase his production. For this, he needs an electric saw to clear his land more efficiently. This way he will have a better income and a better quality of life for himself and his family.
