Description

COCAFCAL, or the Cooperativa Capucas Limitada, is located in western Honduras near the Celaque National Park –a cloud forest containing the country’s highest mountain. The cooperative represents an estimated 12 communities from the municipalities of San Pedro and Corquin, in Copan. Together, they work to promote the sustainable development of their local economy through financial, technical, productive and marketing services for members and families.  Reducing poverty and increasing standards of life for their community are their main objectives and ongoing development programs have benefited approximately 5,000 people in Las Capucas and surrounding regions. Members are dedicated to growing sustainable conventional, organic and Fair Trade coffees. The cooperative’s General Assembly, which manages the democratic use of the Fair Trade premium, is comprised of 10 members, nine of whom are women.

COCAFCAL invested $1,000 in certification premiums in an environmental campaign to promote the maintenance of community spaces and reduce litter. The cooperative paid for the construction and installation of  twenty garbage dumpsters close to local schools, churches, health clinics and grocery stores. Banners with environmental messages were also painted on the dumpsters. The cooperative coordinated presentations for school children on the proper handling of garbage, cleaning and community space stewardship. COCAFCAL also organized a film festival to screen environmental movies and organized a skit where the main character, the “Lorax,” teaches the audience principles of conservation and environmental stewardship.
