Luzmila, 12 years old, collects the barley early in the morning at her family's little farm situated in the mountain behind their house, in a rural village at the Andes Mountains called Sotopampa, in Peru. Once a year, they harvest the barley and then they consume it during the following year. In these communities of indigenous peoples, children work helping their families, being very hard for the Government to maintain a balance between the laws about child work and the ancient tradition of these populations, that includes some difficult tasks for kids.

Location: Sotopampa, Huancavelica, Peru
