Claudia
Claudia, 41, shares her life with Alejandro, 43. They are the parents of Ericka and Maydelin and have managed to move their home forward based on much effort and work. She has an adobe house they acquired 15 years ago. With the fruit of her and Alejandro’s efforts they managed to buy some parcels of farmland to start growing organic cocoa beans and turn this activity into their home’s main source of support. They used to work selling food from place to place but demand was limited so they decided to immediately change over to this line of work. As they started to get into agricultural work they noted that it was very profitable and in time were able to acquire an adjacent parcel to expand production. She considers her work to be very pleasant because she’s at Alejandro’s side all the time and this has helped them solidify their relationship in a positive way.

For the current growing cycle, they want to replace trees that have outlived their productive cycle and use their trunks as hosts for grafts. To do so, they must have seedlings and organic manure from the island. To streamline these activities, they want to hire two day laborers who are specialists in plant grafting to help them.

Their long-term objectives focus on building their house with substantial building materials for their family’s future and she intends to continue working with her characteristic enthusiasm to make this reality. She needs to have 3,000 new soles for the immediate purchase of seedlings, island guano and to hire day laborers who are specialists in this line of work grafting plants to start the growing cycle more strongly and well financed.

Claudia de 41 años comparte una vida marital con Alejandro de 43 años. Ambos padres de las pequeñas Ericka y Maydelin han logrado sacar adelante su hogar a base de mucho esfuerzo y trabajo. Posee una vivienda de adobe adquirida hace 15 años. Con el fruto de su esfuerzo logro junto a Alejandro adquirir unas parcelas para en adelante dedicarse a la producción de cacao orgánico y convertir dicha actividad en el principal sustento de su hogar.
Anteriormente se dedicaban a la venta de comida de manera ambulatoria, pero al no poseer la demanda necesaria optaron por cambiarse inmediatamente de rubro.
A medida que fueron dedicándose a las actividades agrícolas notaron que era muy rentable y lograron con el tiempo adquirir una parcela colindante para ampliar su producción.
Ella considera su actividad muy agradable puesto que esta al lado de Alejandro todo el tiempo y ello ha consolidado de manera positiva su relación.
Para la actual campaña productiva, desean realizar el reemplazo de árboles desfasados y proceder a usar los tallos para injertos, para ello es necesario contar con plantas de almácigo y abono orgánico guano de isla. A manera de agilizar las tareas desean contar con el apoyo de 2 jornaleros especialistas en el injertado de plantas.
Sus objetivos a largo plazo fijan la construcción de su vivienda a base de material noble para el futuro de sus familia y considera seguir trabajando con el entusiasmo que la caracteriza para hacerlo realidad. Requiere contar con 3,000 nuevos soles para la compra inmediata de plantas de almácigo, abono guano de isla y la contrata de jornaleros especialistas en el rubro del injertado esperando así iniciar una campaña mas de manera firme y con el buen financiamiento del caso.
