Bertha
View original language description ↓
Bertha has worked since she was a small girl in growing flowers and we
found her working hard in her fields where she showed us a special flower
called "Lentejas". This flower is used for decorations and flower
arrangements. These flowers are placed around different kinds of flower
arrangements. This work is
difficult and the fruits of her labor come to be every five months. Her
husband is also a farmer and his desire to contribute to bettering the
family has brought him to consider the possibility of increasing their
family's income by growing of vegetables.

Translated from Spanish by Johnny of San Roque High School, Kiva volunteer
