This cooperative of coffee farmers of the Sierra Nevada in Santa Marta has producers located between the Minca and Río Piedra areas. This green business not only seeks to sell coffee and cocoa but also focuses on improving the lives of the 56 families, with a special focus on providing additional income to women (currently 19) for being female-produced coffee. Progreso also supports them in their transition to organic cocoa and helps them promote their products. This results in organic cocoa certifications, improvements in cocoa quality through correct fermentation methods and different visits to cocoa events worldwide.
