Honduras, El Izote
As a child, Maximiliano grew up working on his family's grain farm and did not have access to education. At 24, he married María Molina and began working as a day laborer on coffee farms to learn the trade. Meanwhile, by growing and selling corn on his father's land, he was able to save up to buy his own farm to grow coffee. Over time, he was able to expand his land to 2.8 hectares, with 1.4 hectares dedicated to coffee and the rest for vegetables and other crops. During the harvest season, El Izote provides new opportunities for day laborers who may have their own coffee farms some day!
