Presentation of our cooperative


The cooperative COMBRIFOL was born on 20th of May 2004 integrated by small-scale male and female farmers of the indigenous Lenca with the aim to mitigate and to reduce the causes provoking poverty in the area.

In this sense, we consider that coffee is the sphere with the main impact and the strategical means to achieve social, environmental and economic development for our male and female members.

 

The geographical location where the coffee of COMBRIFOL is grown is the rural area of the south-west of Honduras where, in addition, settle the indigenous Lenca.

COMBRIFOL is a syndicate of 134 male and 59 female small-scale coffee producers living in the municipalities of Marcala, Santa Elena, Yarula and Nahuaterique (Ex-bolsones) in the department of La Paz, small villages situated near the border to the Republic of El Salvador. The office of COMBRIFOL is in Marcala in the department of La Paz.
