Cooperativa Integral Agrícola “La Hermosa”, is located in the Los Planes village in Acatenango, Chimaltenango, Guatemala. A group of producers decided to form a cooperative organization to implement projects of integral development for the social and economic benefit of the members of this group. They also wanted to address the need and demand to increase their production and commercialize their agricultural products (mainly coffee), in the best economic conditions.
The cooperative is made up of 29 associates, 10 women and 19 men, who, in order to strengthen their group, decided to become a cooperative organization with its own legal personality, based on the principles, foundations and philosophy of the cooperative movement. They formed an integral agricultural cooperative, with the purpose of improving and increasing the production of the associates. Also, the cooperative seeks to commercialize the coffee in the best economic conditions and to be able to provide technical assistance services. The coop aims to manage resources from national and international funding without losing their own autonomy.
