Planting to Provide

Written by Plant With Purpose on March 26, 2010 in General

Isabel Faén Melenciano is a Dominican farmer and businessman in the village of Los Mogotes. With Plant With Purposeʼs help, he is improving his farm and transforming his life. He has been involved in a myriad of Plant With Purpose projects: working in tree nurseries, applying agroforestry techniques, and planting acacia, eucalyptus, mahogany and pine trees. All of these projects have helped to restore productivity to his barren land, improving the health, nutrition, and outlook of his entire family. Additionally, joining with the Plant With Purpose community has improved Faénʼs relationship with God. He received his first Bible from Plant With Purpose, and has been growing in his understanding of God ever since. Faén says that with Plant With Purpose he has “learned and overcome a lot. I have made a lot of money, and I have been able to give education to my daughters and support my mother.”
