ODILIA DOMINGO JACINTO, AGRICULTURAL PROGRAM
Learning and sharing are keys to development
Doña Odilia is 28 years old, married, has three children, and lives in the village of Chacaj, Nentón (Huehuetenango). During 2018 she participated in the training course for ‘Voluntary Agricultural Promoters’, in her own village. There she learned how to make Bokashi, an organic fertilizer for use in growing vegetables and especially corn.
“Ms. Odilia shared her experience
with her neighbors in her village”
Despite the drought suffered in July and August last year, knowing these techniques helped her recover depleted soils and maintain the moisture needed for her crops. As it should be, Ms. Odilia shared her experience with her neighbors in her village through agricultural training activities.
