About the family

Genry, originally from Belén de los Andaquíes, has guarded and expanded his property since his father bequeathed it. His family, marked by the adversities of armed conflict, has found refuge in these lands. Descendant from a lineage of farmers, it was a structured project that steered him towards cocoa cultivation. With firm commitment, he dedicates himself to protecting the surrounding forests and their diverse fauna.
