My name is Alicia Crespo Cruz, I am from Comarapa - Santa Cruz, and my husband Juan Carlos Fernández is from Yacuiba - Tarija, we met in Chapare, we have 8 children and for years we have lived here in Yapacaní, with my husband, three of my daughters and a granddaughter, her mother lives in Chile.

For several years we dedicated ourselves to growing rice, although we have only had a good profit in 2 or 3 years and it has helped me buy a small plot of land in Yapacaní, and that is where I now have my house. The rice harvest can be good, but the price is sometimes very low and there are no profits, you can barely pay the operating costs alone.
