Maria Yamilet's story

Doña Maria Yamilet is a young woman of 24 who is married, a housewife and a coffee farmer. She is the mother of a young son who is not yet old enough for kindergarten. Together with her husband Amadeo she works hard to get ahead and have a better life, giving the right care to her coffee crop so that, at the end of the season, she will get an excellent harvest which when sold will give the expected profit, and investing in her crops to make them grow and expand.

It was her parents who, from her childhood, taught her to work in agriculture without neglecting the different chores in the home. Her coffee crops are near the house where they live, giving a major advantage at the time of caring for, cutting and harvesting the beans. She completed her primary studies in full, thanks to the economic and moral support of her parents.

Her goals, dreams and hopes are to be, with each passing day, a better wife and mother, to get ahead by taking every opportunity that is presented, and to give her son a better future and a better standard of living enabling her to support him in his studies so that he can prepare academically to succeed and have a better life.

Doña Maria Yamilet is currently seeking financial support to purchase fertilizers, herbicides and other supplies which help her to care for her crops and protect them from pests and changes in the climate, resulting in an excellent harvest at the end of the season.
