Mari Luz's story

Mari Luz is 32 years old, she lives with her husband and two children who are 5 and 3. She tries very hard handle her heavy workload as a mother and as a farmer. To do this, she fixes meals early in the morning and later leaves for her fields with her family. She works on the farm until late in the afternoon and returns very tired to her home. Without a doubt, what she likes is working alongside her family, which makes it less tiring and exhausting. Although some days because of time and the weather she struggles to work faster.


Mari loves her little ones very much, and they are her motivation to keep working hard day after day. She is now thinking about investing money to buy seeds, and she will also have to buy fertilizer for the sowing season. She hopes that in time she will consolidate her work and will have the capacity to produce in greater quantities.
