Project Launch: 2-18-16
Rosa is a female farmer who has spent most of her life working on small, organic farms in Costa Rica. She currently has her own maize farm, but only produces enough profit to cover her basic living expenses. This project will provide Rosa with a mincer, allowing her to cut maize more efficiently than she could otherwise by hand, as well as produce a higher quality product to sell at a higher price. With more profit, Rosa will have additional income to reinvest back into her farm, transforming the land into a diversified, organic farm. Her goal is to expand her farm to include various crops and employ local workers to manage the land.
