This is Lisa Monet, the step-mother of Charles Oliveira. When her husband Roberto was murdered in São Paulo over a drug deal that didn’t workout in his favor. She and Charles decided to become business partners, as well as lovers, moving to Buenos Aires, Argentina. They have invested heavily in their produce distribution to local merchants. Lettuce, cabbage, tomatoes, peppers, celery, potatoes, squash of all types, berries of every description, then we tried something new. Corn takes more space, but with the right fertilizer, we tried our methods and made history. Same size production on a dwarf-size plant that takes half the room to grow to full maturity.
They and I have partnered building large ten-acre rack-farms in Chile, Bolivia, and Peru. Together we are the largest fruit producers of cherries, blueberries, grapes, stone fruit, citrus, and kiwifruit. No one else can produce year-round, so USA and European markets are now dominated by our supply system of 2 to 3 hour delivery.
Lisa and I were childhood friends, both moving to Texas in 1915. We shared an apartment while attending high school and college. After college, Lisa moved to Santiago de León de Caracas, where she opened several restaurants over the next few years. Everything went along fine, until someone in the Venezuela government discovered what made her coffee so irresistible. Less pain, better concentration, and several disease strains going into remission from just drinking her unique coffee blend. She and Charles have no money problems, since her parents left a large trust for both of their daughters.
