Vilma Elizabeth's story

Vilma is 39 years old and lives together with her spouse and her children. She is a farmer of basic grains such as corn and beans, and also has some feeder animals. She is a very enterprising and admirable woman. She never tires of her daily work since, for her, the most important thing in life is to earn her daily bread in a dignified way: working with her hands. Every time a crop comes to harvest, she sells a part of it, and the other part she keeps for her family's daily consumption.

She has worked all her life in agriculture, and it is in this way that she has been able to survive. Like all enterprising and visionary women, she has made the decision to come to INTEGRAL. The starting date for sowing seeds is growing near and she would like to be prepared with various farming supplies such as seeds, insecticides, fertilizers, etc. so that she can begin as soon as possible and thus be able to harvest the fruits of her labor. She is fully confident that she will obtain a bountiful harvest, which will improve her quality of life and that of her family as well.
