About the family

From El Sánchez in the municipality of Bélen de los Andaquíes, Ever and his family, after venturing into Albania and experimenting with other crops, returned to their roots, purchasing land with their savings. With the legacy of their farming parents and a renewed interest in cocoa, they have diversified their farm. Despite being victims of the conflict and armed conflict, they passionately committed to protecting the forest and its wildlife, harmonizing nature and agriculture.
