Children from the Tinini family help their parents (both are Yapuchiris or expert farmers from the Jacha Suyu Pakajaqi organization) during the quinoa harvest, which will be used to feed their family before leftovers are sent to market. Growing quinoa will be a challenge in the future due to the threat of climate change and the fluctuations in the market.
