Case study: Joana's story

"I no longer need to invest in buying ingredients to cook with." Joana, Bolivia

Joana Limachi from Bolivia received a greenhouse through CAFOD. Being able to grow her own fruit and vegetables has completely changed her life. "I really like this greenhouse," Joana says. "I have struggled in my life until now. But this support has come along and it has really helped and encouraged me."

Joana earns a living by preparing meals to sell. By growing her own food, not only do her family get to eat nutritious meals every day, Joana no longer needs to buy ingredients to cook with. "My tomatoes are growing well. I'll be able to use them in everything like salads. I just take the products from here and cook with them. There is more food now."
