Lucio was planting different vegetable crops before his neighbours recommended he switch to coffee. Through a bank loan Lucio first acquired the farm, and was able to pay this off through his income earned from the coffee production. Lucio works on the farm with his wife and their several farm hands. His children are currently undergoing their studies. Lucio believes in fertilising his plants well making them stronger, healthier and ready to fight off diseases such as Roya.
