This alliance strengthens the positioning of Salvadoran coffee in higher value markets, thus promoting a culture of quality in the production process to satisfy the demand for gourmet coffees in foreign countries. Parallel to these activities, MOCCA and the CSC are designing mechanisms to facilitate profitable financing and are also developing a model plan for the establishment of the Coffee Institute, which will strengthen the technical capacities and knowledge of producers.
We will provide both cooperatives and individual producers served by BFA with technical assistance in renovation and rehabilitation, as well as the design of financing products that respond to the specific profiles and characteristics of the demand for financing of coffee producers, including other actors in the chain, such as nursery operators.
MOCCA and the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock of El Salvador are promoting mechanisms for productive financing and capital raising, aimed at the renovation and rehabilitation of plots, within the national framework of the Coffee Transformation and Sustainability Plan, in order to establish responsibilities and expectations directed towards actions to strengthen the coffee sector in El Salvador.
“My sales have improved a great deal! Now I am an authorized supplier of marsellesa for Starbucks. They trust me because they know that I have good controls, since thanks to Viverista de Oro I learned to implement protocols and keep records for the preventive control of diseases and pests, reducing the deterioration of quality due to this cause almost to zero.”.
