Delia has been a member of the co-op for three years. She previously had to sell quinoa  for lower prices to wholesale traders. The latter would come with lorries and offer an all or nothing price around the harvest. And as a small hold farmer you don’t have much negotiating to do. She is proud that her baby has better food than she did as a child, which means he will grow stronger. The other major change is in toys. Before they had little animals knitted with wool and earthen animal figurines, whereas now they have teddy bears and plastic jinglers. Also the household now has enough cash to live decently, whereas before they scraped through the year Aspirations: She would love her son to go on to higher education, which is something that she never had the opportunity to do.
