USD credit 100'000

Created in 2001, CAFÉ PERÚ LLC’s shareholders includes coffee producer organizations located in the central Peruvian jungle and national and international social investors.

Project description

Its mission is to organize the coffee supply chain through agreements with small producer organizations in the Selva Centrale, to provide efficient and quality processing and storage services to the factory and to develop opportunities for sales on national and international markets. In 2010, CAFÉ PERÚ joined Philea and benefited from several working capital loans. In 2018, faced with internal and economic difficulties, CAFÉ PERÚ strengthened its equity and appointed new members to the Board of directors as well as a new Director to improve its governance and management.

Challenges & perspectives

Increase equity, establish new strategic partnerships. Limit the cost of working capital to 9%. In 2022-2023, some organizations that used CAFE PERÚ's processing and export services encountered climatic and financial difficulties which affected their results.
