Mariela's Dedication Pays Off

Mariela's Dedication Pays Off

May 12, 2022

Our coffee team is made up of some absolutely incredible women. From time to time, we'd like to begin telling you a bit more about them individually.

Let us introduce you to Mariela.

Mariela


With much sacrifice, Mariela obtained her high school degree and has managed to continue studying at the university. Thanks to her work at San Lazaro, she is currently achieving her dream of studying law so she can care for those most in need.

Mariela recently had the privilege of being able to share her life experience at our ribbon cutting for Lazarus Academy, including all she has had to go through to get where she is. Her speech was given in front of media, members of the community and students. How awesome is it to see her inspiring the next generation to rise above their circumstances and succeed?

Her team members say Mariela shows effort and dedication in her studies as well as in her work. They describe her as a cheerful young woman, always willing to support her colleagues and the farm, dynamic and positive in all she does. Way to go, Mariela! Thank you for the great example you set for all of us.
