COCAFCAL, or the Cooperativa Capucas Limitada, is located in western Honduras in the buffer zone of the Celaque National Park–a cloud forest containing the country’s highest mountain. The cooperative represents an estimated 12 communities from the municipalities of San Pedro and Corquin, in Copan. Together, they work to promote the sustainable development of their local economy through financial, technical, productivity, and marketing programs for members and families. Their primary objectives are to reduce poverty and to increase the standard of living for their community. Their development programs have benefitted approximately 5,000 people in Las Capucas and surrounding regions. The cooperative's General Assembly has 10 members, nine of whom are women. The General Assembly manages the democratic use of the Fair Trade premium.
