About the family

With roots in Belén de los Andaquíes, Rosalba found love and relocated to the San Antonio de Belén rural area, where she soon bought a property. Though scars from the armed conflict mark her story, a training ignited in her a passion for cocoa as a promise for the future. Today, with determination, she safeguards the forest and wildlife that embellish her home.
