COOPAFSI (Cooperative Agraria “Frontera San Ignacio” Ltda) was officially established in June 1969. Gender equality was an important factor when the land was purchased and divided among producers. This particular cooperative is unique because they empower and promote “women grown” coffee.
Florentina has been a member of COOPAFSI since 2005, following in the foot steps of her father. She was one of the first women to start the "Savia del Cafe" committee. Currently this group has 40 coffee producing members and is forecasting continued growth. Florentina also makes beautiful saddlebags and seat covers.
