Fabiola Ortiz

Jose Angel, Costa Rica

“I was one of the first workers to help building the geothermal plant of Miravalles in the 80s. … For over 25 years I lived in Guayabo without any electricity. Life was completely different back then. We had to cook with firewood and had to light the places with candles. … When the energy came, everything became easier. … I don’t want to go back to those times without electricity. … Guayabo wouldn’t be nothing without the geothermal plant.”
