To work on a farm is no easy feat; it requires a great deal of physical labour and knowledge of the whole process from technical aspects of production (maintaining the earth and harvest) to the economic inversion (the commercialization). For young mother and head of household, Johana Martínez, 34 the struggle is even greater. WFP's P4P program as well as the collective she is a member assist in relieving some of her stress.
