“We are six brothers and one sister. I left school and started farming due to my family struggling financially, and I have been doing it for nine years. When I was a kid, I wanted to be a doctor, but reality is different from imagination. Financial struggles didn’t let me reach my goals. Each day I work in a different field, today we pick cotton, and tomorrow something else. We wake up everyday at 5 AM before sunrise to get ready, and at about 6 AM we get to the farms and work until 5 PM. We get a fee for all the cotton picking we do, about 8 cents for each kilo. It is a really difficult job, but we have to do it.”
