They liked it and decided to stay.  In 1965, growers cut back cultivation 30 percent because of that overproduction (Zondag 1968:194).  A group of Old Colony Mennonites have been allotted land to the south of Santa Cruz, and their small settlements are well on the way to prosperity.  The fact that CORDECRUZ is one of few government bureaucracies that pay well and on time and have adequate funding for projects no doubt has contributed to this attraction.
