GROW bananas from Organics Unlimited give an effective and easy outlet for those consumers to share their prosperity and feel good about the help they are giving. Sixty cents from every box of GROW bananas you purchase goes directly to the GROW fund to provide medical, dental and educational programs to the communities where our bananas are grown.

Each year, a number of standout students are selected to receive a GROW scholarship, which provides necessary funding for schooling. Without the scholarship, these exceptionally bright students would have limited opportunities and would most likely not be able to afford their education.
Here are profiles of three of this year’s GROW students. Each has a bright future ahead of them because of this opportunity. These are stories your customers would love to hear:
Denia Yadira Villegas Tapia: Denia is 20 years old and is in her 3rd year at the University of Colima. Earning a 9.34 GPA (out of 10), Denia is studying to be a teacher. She likes all her classes, but really enjoys English. Her parents had only completed primary school, so her father works on the banana plantation while her mother works around the home. Her family is very proud of her for pursuing her goals and dreams!
Toño de Jesús Gutiérrez Grajeda: Toño is 21 years old and in his 3rd year at University of Colima. He has earned a 9.33 GPA (out of 10) and is majoring in International Business. Raised by his single mother, he often has to help out in the banana fields in order to contribute to his family. He’s excited for the opportunity to further his education and earn a degree that will help him get a good job in the future.
Odalis Margartia Martinez Aguilar: Odalis is 13 years old and is in 8th grade. She has earned a 9.8 GPS (out of 10) and dreams of one day becoming a teacher. She works very hard in school and her grades prove it. She lives with her grandmother and older brother. Unfortunately, Odalis has no support from her parents. Without the support from GROW, she would not be able to afford necessary school supplies, registration fees and books.
