Candalaria Baj (50), a Mayan Q'eqchi, at her home among one of the communities of the Polochic Valley.

She is from one of 80 families, from three communities, who resisted a court ordered eviction as Inversiones Cobra SA, a banana plantation and palm oil company, sought their land for agribusiness.

Eventually, the courts ruled in favour of the farmers, a rare success for the indigenous population in their land rights struggles.
