Story

Inalvys Bueno



Inalvys Bueno (40), resident of Santiago de Cuba, is one of the beneficiaries of the SDG Fund joint program dedicated to strengthening the resilience of vulnerable families affected by the drought since 2015. Her story is that of a strong woman who, like many others, is managing to cope with the drought by keeping the crops of the fields alive in one of the most affected neighborhoods, "where more water evaporates than it falls." With the support of the joint program, she and other women producers in the area are now sustaining their home economies and covering the nutritional needs of a thousand children, seniors, pregnant women and nursing mothers, with an added challenge: their neighborhood is one of the most vulnerable in the city, it is far from downtown, with tall buildings without cisterns or communal drinking water containers. "The people in Santiago do not fall asleep, especially women," says Inalvys. "Here we know how to turn things around and that, out of everything bad, something better comes out.” This is how resilience is built.
