Meet Our Farmers
“Before Catalisa arrived, I didn’t have an income source. I still haven’t opened an account, but this is one of my priorities. With this money, I buy inputs like insecticides, seeds, and other equipment that contributes to multiply my production. I have bought another land area to extend my farm. In the future, I need to have a car to take my production to other markets.”
"Working with Catalisa is awesome, and the results speak for themselves, I have increased my production area, and because I need to devote more time to my farm, I left my brother in town, he is doing the business, I help him manage the distance."
