Marcelina's story

Marcelina, 59, is a widowed mother of one child and an optimistic woman who has always desired to achieve. She knows that this will be possible through hard work and determination. She works hard to achieve her dreams. She loves and takes great care of her family.

Marcelina was born in a family where farming skills were passed on from one generation to another. She did not have any alternative way of earning an income, so she ventured into farming.

Through continuous involvement in crop and animal farming, Marcelina is able to provide her family with meals at least once a day. Marcelina has realized that there are very few crop farmers in her local market. She views this as a great opportunity for her to make increased profits that would go beyond meeting the basic needs of her household.
