About the family

María Nelly was born and raised in La Cumbre, where she resides. Her family has been displaced victims of the armed conflict. Nevertheless, through the love of her parents, who were farmers, María Nelly has persevered with a fascination for cocoa cultivation, stemming from a deeply rooted tradition inherited from her mother. Nowadays, the property that once belonged to her mother has become a project centered around cocoa and focused on biodiversity conservation.”
