I was born in the city of Pasto located in the department of Narino on September 14thof 1978. When I was 14 years old, my parents bought a farm in the village La Caldera in Narino, where we currently work. Then, my parents moved to the city of Pasto where they settled.
With hard work and sacrifice, my parents, my sister and me, could bought the farm Campina in 1983 and since 1990 I planted the first ten thousand coffee plants that were the base to sustain my family, that is composed by my wife and my two daughters. Nowadays we have seven hectares and 900.000 meters in coffee that we are now 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 professionally realized but always inculcating them the desire for 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 since along years we have supported many personal and economic crises but always moving forward and I only wish to have my family by my side.
