"Before now, you always knew when to plant your crops. With global warming, climate change, you don't know the cycles of your own crops any more. Before you'd plant on a certain date and you knew your crops would be okay. Now if you plant on the dates we used to use, your crops will fail. The only way to guarantee a crop now is with irrigation and we've been happy to work with World Renew on several irrigation projects in this area."
"The country has great hopes with our new President, the first woman President in Honduras. There are a lot of challenges ahead, but we hope she can move us along a path towards greater gender equity and security for women, and support for small businesses for women, so that women don't have to migrate so much. We believe that the arrival of our first woman President is symbolic, of our hope and the changes we want to see in the country."
