Buenaventura's story

Buenaventura grows staple crops such as corns, beans and sorghum. She learned this work very young with the help of her father and she has had this business for 20 years. She works from 7am to 3pm. She lives with her family, which is made up of her husband, sons, daughters-in-law, and grandchildren. She will purchase manure, pesticides, fertilizers, insecticides and herbicides. These things are necessary for clearing the land, eradicating pests, and improving productivity. She hopes to provide better nutrition for her family and greater income so that she can meet her financial commitments. She hopes to offer her family a better quality of life and prepare for the next planting season.
