Our Featured Farmer this month is Olga (right), an avocado grower in Peru. Olga is a former obstetrician who turned to farming in order to rescue her family from crisis. She joined a local avocado association that later partnered with Fairtrasa, and emerged as such a natural leader that she was elected President of the association in 2014.
