My name is Elisi. I am a farmer in Rwanda. It’s a struggle with irregular rains and poor soil. Lack of food and malnutrition are big challenges. Another challenge is that I am HIV-positive. My husband died from AIDS. I also lost my only child. I have taken two orphans into my home and I also take care of my father. He no longer has the energy to help in the fields. He sees me struggle. But I keep thinking positively and work hard so that I can survive and help my whole family.
