YOUR SUPPORT EMPOWERS SMALL-HOLDER COFFEE FARMERS IN GUATEMALA TO SUCCEED
Our Cooperative Assistance program equips farmers and cooperatives with the machinery and tools, training, and financing opportunities they need to be successful and profitable farmer groups.
Your support of De la Gente helps to create economic opportunities that improve the quality of life for small-holder coffee farmers and their families. Your donation will allow us to build capacity in our partner cooperatives, provide micro-financing opportunities, and build relationships with conscious buyers ensuring our farmers get a fair price for their product.
Here’s how your donation will impact over 350 coffee farmers in Guatemala:
De la Gente supports farmers in the provision of machinery to aid in their coffee production. In 2018, a group of students fundraised to support three farmers in San Miguel Escobar with new electric depulpers for their coffee. Read more about how this donation supported farmers.
Gathering together leaders of our partner cooperatives is important to aid in knowledge sharing and building rapport with peers. That’s why we host our Annual Coffee Congress each year to bring farmers together, share new ideas, and build stronger relationships. Learn about our Congress here.
We are proud to offer a Financing Program to farmers so they may purchase land, machinery, fertilizers, or other necessary capital to enable their coffee businesses. We are especially proud to support the Next Generation of farmers. Here’s how your support has aided these young farmers.
