About the family

From Albania, Caquetá, Victor and his family, scarred by the conflict, sought refuge in this land 11 years ago. They inherited his father’s farming tradition and chose cocoa for its promising benefits. Despite challenges like wildlife threatening their chickens, Victor is determined to safeguard the forest’s rich biodiversity.
