Norma Suyapa's story

Norma is a young mother of two children attending school. She’s in a common law relationship and is only 29-years-old. She completed primary school having attended up to 6th grade. She works growing and producing coffee since her parents taught her at a young age how to grow it; it was a family tradition and its sole source of income. Now it’s hers too. The land she and her spouse work is an inheritance from her parents who she thanks for the support they’ve provided for her and her family throughout her life.

At present she needs help to improve her coffee crops giving them the necessary maintenance to strengthen the beans, the plants and their roots which is key to their health. Her dream is that her children attend university and obtain a degree which will be beneficial and enjoyable for them so that they will be able to face the various economic, social and cultural obstacles in life.
