Producers Cooperative in the Peruvian Highlands


Cajamarca, Peru

Alum Project Leader:

Pedro Flores

Pedro organized a 100-member farming cooperative whose producers grow paprika and sunflowers on 35 and 435 acres of land. The growers’ cooperative has helped to secure longer-term markets and improve income levels throughout their region in the northern Peruvian highlands. This year the organization is considering adding 100 new members, and is now experimenting with saffron production and guano fertilizer applications.
