I entered the coop in 1985. I have always had my plots and I run them in a natural way. Since I entered the coop with the organic technology, I have earned a better price and I was able to buy my house and my children have achieved a higher level of education.
My children and I get up early to gather firewood before they go to school and I go to the fields. I work during the whole year. The crop changes depending on the season. If a coffee plant dies I plant another. The coop is composed of 18 members who are on the junta directiva. I am one of the leaders of the coop.
