The El Bombo Inza Association has been working in the region for 8 years, and was formed a year and a half earlier in order to take advantage of its fertile soils, allowing a significant decrease in the use of chemicals, thus generating an organic coffee market. Its main objective is to support producers in the recovery of soils and in the reinvestment of their crops, obtaining quality coffee and improving living conditions.
The El Bombo Inza Association has a short term goal of joining it’s 150 producers and their respective Organic Certification with the certification standards of the United States and the European Union. It should be noted, 46 women heads of household are part of this project. With this certification plan, the aim is to guide producers so that their profits are reinvested in housing and also to provide education to their children, primarily focused on agriculture, to encourage their legacy to continue, and for their children to see a business opportunity from a life in the field. In turn, another goal is for the producers to improve their facilities in the production area in order to have improved pulping, drying and storage processes.
The El Bombo Inza Association supports the empowerment of women heads of families, and in order to do this, they jointly initiate studies with SENA in order to learn to generate alternative income from the sales of different products thus increasing their income helping them maintain both their families and their farms.
