USD credit 150'000

Created in 1982, the Renacimento cooperative specializes in the production of organic coffee. It’s headquarters is in the Jutapia department in the southeast of the country.

Project description

The cooperative has 195 members (163 men, 32 women), with a cultivated area of 1’058 hectares. The cooperative pre-finances its members' campaign and provides technical advice related to coffee production. At the same time, commercial alliances with the Federation of Coffee Producers’ Cooperatives of Guatemala (FEDECOCAGUA) and other partners facilitate marketing mechanisms. Renacimiento has recently invested in equipment to sort the quality of the coffee and obtain an optimal product without paying the exporter for this service. This added value will improve both the selling price and the profit margin. This service will also be offered to third parties.

Challenges & perspectives

Product diversification. Growth of activities linked to coffee sales. Annual membership growth of 20% is expected thanks to new equipment and improved marketing conditions.
