I was born in the department of Narino. 7 years ago I came to this area and I bought the farm, it was completely unproductive. Right now all the farm, which is very small, is full with coffee, healthy and new trees. The farm gives me all the happiness the life haven't provide me, my wife died several years ago and we didn't have children. I am currently a member of the Associative Group "Las Vegas".
I manage the solid wastes through recycling processes. I don't burn the land, I don't hunt and I don't have wildlife in captivity either. I do cultural control of the broca.
