Pepito in Guatemala


Pepito is 11 years old. He lives on a typical Hispanic hacienda in Guatemala. The farm’s main crop is corn but other vegetable are grown such as lettuce. The farm also has a herd of cattle. Corn is a very important resource here. It helps feed the cows, the pigs, the chickens. There’s a different variety for human consumption. With this corn we make floor with which we make tortilla. We also prepare a special drink made from corn and milk. Everything from the plant is utilised, the husk is recycled as fuel to light the BBQ. Pepito will go to market to sell his products. And he will visit his friend Francisco who owns and run a coffee plantation. Here we will learn the different steps of fabrication.
