Yuliana Cardona, 21 lives on the high mountain slopes of San Pedro Abajo, Santa Rita in Antioquia, Colombia.
Yuliana is one of 950 students who have been subsidised with the Fairtrade Premium through the Andes Coop to study at university. She is studying for a degree in agriculture. So far, the Andes coffee-producing coop has spent $1.5 million on the programme.
Yuliana's father is one of 3,500 members of the coop. Any coop member, their partner or children can take part in the superior education programme.
Here Yuliana uses her mule "Cotolo" to move bananas. The bananas are grown to shade the coffee on her farm.
