I was born in Chachagui located in the department of Narino on April 4th of 1930. I grew up in the path Sanchez and in June of 1950 we bought a farm with my father and my brothers, where we planted coffee for first time. For June of 1966, after serving Colombia s army, when I was 36 years old, I was the owner of the farm now called El Manana. The farm helped us in the sustenance of my family which is composed by my wife and my two children, a man and a woman. Today we have 3 hectares and 8 thousand square meters in coffee that we are already renovating.
My biggest wishes are to continue planting coffee and in that way improve my incomes and the life quality of my family. My dreams are projected on seeing my children managing my coffee farm, inculcating them the desire for the countryside and that they never forget that it was the one that gave them a hand to accomplish their dreams.
With coffee I became a recognized person in the municipality as an example of work and perseverance, because along years we have endured many personal and economic crises but always moving forward and I only hope to have my family by my side.
