Nohemy Del Socorro's story

"God has blessed us with the most beautiful gifts that man can receive: land on which to live, and a family to love". This is the phrase that Nohemy, 41 years old, uses to express her gratitude and love for her family and for the land that provides food for them to eat. Working is one of Nohemy's greatest passions because she loves the countryside and everything she produces there. Every day she wakes up early to do the household chores and later she looks after her tomato and bean plants. Thanks to this work, her family is able to sustain itself and she can provide her three oldest children with an education.

Nohemy is currently applying for a loan that she will invest in buying seeds and fertliser to increase her harvest. This will increase her income, thus hleping with the family's well-being.
