Aldea Global - Asociación Aldea Global Jinotega

ALDEA GLOBAL was founded in 1992 by 22 indigenous farmers in the mountainous region of northern Nicaragua. These Chorotega descendants formed the cooperative to promote sustainable agricultural practices that would help protect their environment and improve their quality of life. Today the association focuses on the growth of the cooperative by promoting efficient commercialization, solidarity and alternative credit services, while maintaining a commitment to the environment. ALDEA GLOBAL has also made gender equity a priority.
