People are privileged when there are feminine hands behind any production. In this way, the husbands feel very much supported by their wives, who in addition to the domestics duties also work in cultivating the land.

Maria, who is 33 years old and has three children and a husband, works particularly in raising coffee and bananas, where she helps her husband with the family income.

But she aspires to more, and with the loan that she has applied for, she wants to buy land to leave to her children so that they can carry out their lives when they are adults.
