Elvia Almachi, AGROGANA (flowers), Ecuador

Elvia, 32, understands the importance of education. She’s now studying alongside her two daughters, Angelica, 12, and Estefania, 9, while she earns her high school diploma.

Fair Trade Mother's Day quotePlease continue to believe in us. It's through these Fair Trade flowers that hundreds of families, like mine, continually improve our lives.

By day she works hard packing beautiful roses at the Agrogana flower farm in Cotopaxi, Ecuador and at night you’ll find her at the adult school program that was funded by the Fair Trade premium. As a member of the farm’s Fair Trade committee, she and her co-workers have invested the Fair Trade premiums to establish a children’s reading program, health clinics and a shopping club for low-priced groceries.
