Wealth is very unevenly distributed in Ecuador. Only about 1% of the population could enjoy the benefits of the growth seen in recent years. This inequality arises mainly from the distribution of land ownership. Small quinoa farmers in the poor province of Chimborazo in the central highlands of the Andes mountains didn’t let this stand in their way. They stood together and set up the Coprobich cooperative. By joining forces, the 565 members find it easier to obtain finance, produce more efficiently and find it easier to access to the market, among other things.
Our aim is to further professionalize the Coprobich cooperative and make it self-sufficient as soon as possible. This will enable the quinoa farmers to provide for their basic needs and those of their families.
