Emiliano's story

Sr. Emiliano S. H. is 59 years old and married. His wife handles the household activities and chores around their farm. They have been growing coffee and citrus fruits for 36 years. They both started in this line of work as a result of Emiliano’s efforts. In addition, they have two children. One works as a nurse and the other is a student who helps with the household chores.

Some of the main difficulties they have confronted over the years include the assault on Emiliano in which he was physically beaten and the financial impact on their family. He was incapacitated and not able to work for a long period of time. After receiving treatments, he was able to return to working their land. Among their plans are to diversify their crops, but they first need an infusion of capital to purchase supplies and fertilizers. This will help with production and result in more income to invest in future projects.

Emiliano and his family are honest, responsible, and well-recognized by the community for their work.
