Finca Las Delicias
The majority of workers do not own a house and the conditions of their temporary homes are in poor conditions. We really feel it is a priority to use Fair Trade premiums to correct this situation. ”
Juan José González Serna, Joint Body Member
Fair Trade premiums continue to fund low-interest home construction loans for Las Delicias workers. Since the program's inception, 35 workers have achieved their dream of owning a dignified home to raise their families and more continue to benefit.
Las Delicias’ Joint Body continues to allocate its Fair Trade premium funds at the beginning of each school cycle to award scholarships to workers and their families. Las Delicias workers are encouraged to seek technical degrees and start small businesses from home.
A New Drainage System
Finca Las Delicias increased production by 15 percent after installing a new drainage system with funding from Fair Trade premiums.
