I will never give up coffee now. The coffee plants are like my children. Just as your children look after you when you are old, these plants will look after my family for many years. I earned Rs 11,505.00 from the coffee crop this year. I had never seen so much money in my life. Other farmers also grow coffee but our plantation coffee, with Naandi's marketing help, is giving us more than anything we have ever received.
Organic didn't mean much to me at first. I am not a farmer and I am illiterate. But, I saw the soil respond to the care we gave it. I have learned new things about growing coffee. The trainings from our coordinators have helped immensely.
