Description : People came to El Barrancon 3 years ago. Since then, they live in the same way as they used to, but in a state of poverty and mendicity because they cannot have access to the natural resources they need to sustain their living anymore (hunting, fishing, fruit picking, medicinal herbs, etc.) In some cases, they may eventually live like before, but in a limited and insufficient way. Deep jungle is far away and scarce surrounding resources usually lay in lands owned by sharecroppers.
