Hello, my name is Brenan Rocío Popol Chitay, from the of San Martin Jilotepeque, Guatemala. I am in 8th grade. 

There are seven people living at my house, my mom, dad, my little brother and me. Plus three cousins on my dad’s side. My cousins don’t have a mom or dad and so my parents take care of them, so they live with us. 

We help my dad, who is a vegetable farmer. We grow green beans, radishes, carrots, broccoli. We also grow small reforestation trees and flowers that we sell. 

The pandemic it has affected us a lot because fewer people come to buy goods at the markets. People don’t have money. 

Thanks to the support of my family and Yuda Bands I am able to go to school even during these difficult times. Thank you for helping me, God bless you.
