"Happiness is feeling comfortable."
By working in the pineapple cooperative visited by Sophia Jansson (niece of the Moomins' creator), Theresie now earns 50% more than she used to for each pineapple she sells. She can now support her whole family, no longer relies on her husband for money and has bought a calf to provide manure for her land. "When I couldn't afford school fees, the children could not go to school… I had no peace of mind," she says. "[Now] I would tell other women that they should work together with others in order to increase their production."
