“When Francisco was one, they found that he was severely malnourished when I went to immunize him at the health centre,” says Carmelita, holding Francisco, surrounded by on looking villagers.
“I live with my whole family in this small house, including my grandmother,” she says. “We produce corn and peanuts and we store some of it here and sell a little. We eat corn every day. We boil it and mix it with some beans. If we can afford it, we’ll also have some rice”.
