Aurora
View original language description ↓
Aurora tiene 37 años, vive con su esposo y su hijo de 4 años.
Se dedica a la agricultura, labor que aprendió desde muy niña y que es hasta hoy la única actividad que realiza, a la cual se dedica todas las mañanas, a limpiar y abonar sus terrenos. Aurora nos cuenta que esta actividad le ayudó mucho para solventar los gastos de su hogar, por ello que se esfuerza al máximo y disfruta de su trabajo, porque desde muy pequeña aprendió a querer sus terrenos de cultivos y a pesar de las dificultades que se presentan, como los altos costos de los abonos y semillas, trata de no dejar de trabajar.
Aurora trabaja arduamente con el fin de ofrecer a su menor hijo todo lo necesario para su crecimiento y desarrollo.
Ahora, desea ampliar sus terrenos e iniciarse en el cultivo de café, ya que es lo más rentable por esta temporada, más adelante tener una bodega de compra y venta de fruta y café.

Aurora is 37 years old and lives with her husband and her 4 year old son. She is a farmer, something she learned as a child and up to today it is the only activity that she engages in; every morning she cleans and fertilizes her lands. Aurora tells us that this activity has helped cover the costs of her home, which is why she is trying to get the most out of it and she also enjoys herself. As a little girl she learned to love her farmland regardless of the difficulties that often arise such as the high cost of fertilizer and seeds and tries not to stop working. Aurora works hard in order to offer her youngest child everything necessary for their growth and development. Now, she would like to expand her land and start cultivating coffee, which is more profitable in this season. In the future she would also like to have a store for the buying and selling of fruit and coffee.
