NOTES 1. The principal author was a Peace Corps agroforestry extension volunteer in the

housing, sanitary facilities, farm size, number and type of farm implements and livestock, and material possessions (Chambers, 1983; Laird, 1979; Lopez & Valdes, 2000). Fann size appears to be the best indicator of wealth in this community: "Poor" fatnilies were those with little or no land. Land-poor families had no space for animals, and they could not grow enough cash or subsistence crops.
