In Guatemala, Roberto Satisfies Passion for Farming with Training
Roberto, a longtime farmer and member of one of the communities served by FRB’s Guatemala-Four Departments program, is taking good advantage of the appropriate farming techniques he’s learned from the program. Roberto is passionate about agriculture. During his childhood and adolescence, he lived with his parents and worked with them on various private farms in Quetzaltenango. His family had to spend all they earned – about three quetzales (40 cents today) a week – so they were never able to pull themselves out of poverty.
