About the family

Parmenio, from Pacho, Cundinamarca, used to have a property in Palmeiras rural area. Growing up with farmer parents, he knows the land well. After being displaced by the armed conflict, he and his family turned to cocoa farming, drawn to its profit and the joy of managing the crop. Today, as they focus on their crops, they also protect the forest and wildlife.
