Farmers trained


We work in partnership

To ensure a long-lasting impact beyond the life of a project we connect producers directly with markets. We partner with companies that not only aim to invest in improving coffee quality and yields, but also in the systems that make possible those improvements for the future, such as higher prices, good genetic material for planting, and more direct, feasible and profitable supply chains for smallholder farmers.

Our partnerships

This alliance is focused on the implementation of the communication strategy, which includes a radio program to broadcast information on good practices in coffee growing to some 10 thousand producers during the social distancing measures implemented due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, in 3 of the 7 coffee growing regions in the departments of: San Marcos, Quetzaltenango, Sololá, Suchitepéquez, Quiché, Chiquimula and Zacapa.

Fundación Génesis Empresarial provides access to agile and timely financing, complementing capacity building and access to genetic material for coffee and cacao producers in the MOCCA program. FGE has made available US$10 million to benefit 11,000 producers to acquire working capital, purchase inputs, and farming equipment, with medium-term investments for the farms.
