To continue evolving the agricultural sector, it is crucial to achieve gender equity in the presence of men and women in this field.
The entry of women into the agricultural field has brought significant changes and improvements, such as the implementation of sustainable and environmentally friendly agricultural practices, which have helped preserve land and natural resources for future generations.
To highlight the relevance of women in agriculture, we had the honor of speaking with Maria Aguilera, a prominent farmer who has dedicated her life to cultivating Finca el Túnel. Maria is an example of perseverance and dedication in a sector traditionally dominated by men. In this interview, we will learn more about her experience and perspectives in a fundamental sector for society.
