Andinorganic Community products of the Andes

Impact

We currently work with 12 communities of small-scale farmers. These communities group nearly three thousand peasant families, 40% of which live in areas affected by the armed conflict in Colombia. Our programs work on three axes: strengthening of the peasant communities at the organizational and productive level, quality and added value of their products, and commercialization. The commercialization component seeks to positively impact the income of small producers by providing a fair sales channel where we guarantee an additional 20% to the market price. Finally, it should be noted that the beneficiary communities are composed of different types of vulnerable communities: farmers, indigenous people, women, victims of the conflict, etc.
