My family has been involved in agriculture since 1950, a time when banana harvesting was exclusively a male business. And in my family, I had many male siblings.
In the year 2000, my father decided to dedicate himself to organic farming. He knew it wouldn't be easy, but despite that, he chose to trust me, a woman, to continue his legacy.
My father trusted me,
a woman, to continue
This was because he knew I would never give up until his dream blossomed.
Along the way, I had to fight against many prejudices: some told me that organic plantations would fail; others said that a woman in the agricultural business wouldn't succeed. But I knew I was on the right path, so I dedicated myself to this dream of achieving sustainable organic farming, helping to preserve the environment and the planet's biodiversity.
As I said, the road was not easy, but it wasn't impossible either. Thanks to our love for the land and our perseverance to achieve sustainable organic farming, this project has grown to become what Marplantis is today.
