Rosa de Velázquez

“I cultivate cauliflower, broccoli, zucchini, and artichoke.  A short time ago, I tried purple lettuce. In this way, I was able to make my house more comfortable, with electric lights.  I also was able to buy my cow, which I always had lacked. Fundación Valles have helped us a lot, making us aware of new seeds and different cultivation techniques. For this I would like to thank them.”

“One of the greatest dreams of my father, may he rest in peace, was to have a flower shop. With the help of some institutions, I believe that I am making his dream come true, which is now also mine. With flower growing, a technician is always necessary, an agricultural engineer to give you direction. Thanks to the help that I received, I see myself as an Elena that achieved what she started out to do, an Elena that helps her family, her younger siblings, an Elena that is going to keep striving to move ahead.”

“I am very happy, very satisfied with the oregano. The producers should cultivate oregano without fear; much more should be cultivated, because there is a market for the oregano, so they should put out more effort and cultivate more. When income improves, everything in the home gets better. They have helped us a lot, and we want them to keep doing it, because it is a process that gives results.”
