Claricsa Del Socorro's story

42-year old Señora Claricsa del Socorro López lives in the municipality of Ticuantepe in the community of Edén. She is a single mother of three children who attend school and help around the house. The eldest is 16 years old and also helps in the fields.

Doña Claricsa’s dream is to see her children go to university. She has struggled to overcome her modest roots as she comes from a family of country folk from whom she learned over the last twenty years how to work the earth.

Her biggest problem is a lack of fungicides, fertilizer, and other agricultural products for her fields. She needs assistance to buy these items so that she can sell her crops for a good price. Her fields will benefit from the purchase, and so will her family.
