APROMALPI - Asociación Productores de Mango del Alto Piura
New Ophthalmology Services
Fair Trade standards require each cooperative to provide essential health care services to each of their members. In the general assembly, APROMALPI members voted to provide ophthalmology services for its members and community. As many of APROMALPI's members are over 60, it is important these individuals have access to health care.
Community Social Projects
APROMALPI donates staple foods and nursing home beds to the community's elderly. It also provides chocolate to low-income children in Chulucanas.
APROMALPI has a fund dedicated to purchasing agricultural inputs for its mango crop.
Training and Team Building
APROMALPI has been able to hold capacity building programs with the help of their Fair Trade premiums. Members have benefited from trainings on leadership, team motivation and business organization. With these programs members are able to better manage their own organization and play a hands on role in the overall structure and development of their organization.
