Economy in the remote villages of Chajmaic and Salaguna, in Eastern Alta Verapaz, has begun!
Delfina’s plan is to learn in order to teach other women. She wants to set up garden production in order to support the children in her village of Salaguna.
There is the possibility of selling her and other women’s products to the school, according to the law, this is called “Local Production” use. But this is only one of several opportunities that they are hoping for.
With the funds raised through sale of vegetables at her greenhouse (started March 2022), Lety has been able to maintain her home-based shop, sell home-cooked meals, and to set up a chicken coop (innovatively located under her greenhouse), which gives her additional income.
