About the family

Pablo is a native of the region and lives with his wife on a nearby farm since El Poira lacks housing. Pablo and his family have been displaced and victims of the armed conflict, but despite this, he has managed to move forward with the agricultural vocation instilled in him by his parents. Cocoa is a crop that is part of his life, and he decided to establish it due to its profitability and environmental friendliness.
