About the family

Flordely, originating from the Paujilito rural area in Paujil carries her family’s ancestral legacy and aspirations. Profoundly affected by the armed conflict and displacement, they found stability in their agricultural heritage. A strategic initiative guided them towards cocoa cultivation, not only as a means of livelihood but also as a decisive measure against the proliferation of illicit crops.
