Kiva Lending Team: Team COCAFCAL
We loan because...
We believe in the importance of promoting the production of coffee that is certified organic and fair trade, among other certifications, through the financing of small loans to coffee producers. Additionally, to reduce risks of depending solely on coffee, we loan to promote the diversification of agricultural activities and income streams among coffee producers through the financing of such organic activities as beekeeping, fruit production, and food production/processing facilities. In doing so, we hope to contribute to the better use of environmental, financial, and human resources in order to improve both the quality of life of the coffee producers and their families as well as the quality of coffee produced in the region of Copan, Honduras.
Members of Team COCAFCAL are united by a shared desire to support the sustainable development of the local economy throughout the rural communities of western Honduras in which the COCAFCAL co-op members work. In particular, we are focused on supporting the production of organic and fair trade coffee as well as supporting diversification through the promotion of other organic products. Through this lending team, we hope to contribute to the reduction of poverty and increase the quality of life in the rural communities of the western Honduras.
