Timo works his fields on Volcán de Agua primarily on his own, with the help of his horse, Coyota, to haul compost up the volcano, and to bring coffee fruit down. He lives with his wife and six children in a concrete home he built with his own hands, gradually adding rooms with the income from each coffee harvest. Thanks to the incremental income, Timo has also been able to further his children’s education. He stands out for his commitment to the education and progress of his daughters, spending over a third of his income on their education. 

Timo also works for De la Gente, an organization that exists to provide Guatemalan coffee farmers with the skills and market access they need to run sustainable and profitable businesses. He works as a peer-to-peer educator for other co-ops in the network, educating coffee farmers about combatting roya and how to improve their farming practices – using his success to make others successful too.
