Natividad DuarteSmallholder farmer in Paraguay
Stevia is a good crop because I have an ensured market for sale and it contributes to the family livelihood. The production process is safe, I do not use chemicals that can damage my family or my land.

Through the stevia program, I received a water tank, a motor for the water tank, fabric to cover my crops, shovel, hoe and pipes, as well as assistance from technicians.

Stevia is the only cash crop I currently have. The sale of the stevia leaves give me money to buy food for my family, as I have a large family. Also I use the money to buy shoes and clothes for my children and to improve my house.

The best thing about my job is to work closely with the farmers. The daily support we provide to them generates good relationships. Thanks to the organic stevia program, many families get new opportunities, which are also good for the environment.
Our sustainable stevia production helps smallholder farmers in Paraguay to a better life, and the world to a better health.
