Bolivia - Coca Farmers

Thirteen year old Adalid Galarza lies in a family stack of coca leaves in the coca market of the town of Villa 14 de Septiembre. Each family is allowed a 50 x 50 meter land plot, known as a "Cato", to grow coca legally. Today however the law is changing and allowing in some instances for each individual to have his own "Cato". The farmers sell the coca between 16 to 20 Bolivianos a pound, (roughly 2 US dollars) The Villa 14 de Septiembre was the former working place of the now president and ex coca farmer Evo Morales. President Morales is pushing for the legalization of coca and for a higher production of the plant to increase exports of its by products while at the same time fighting against its use in the production of cocaine.
