SAPRIET - Sociedad Agrícola Prieto
The General Assembly organized a day of "Olympic Games" for all farm workers, employees and their relatives. This community event aimed to integrate and create greater social ties between workers, community members and other enterprises.
Portions of the Fair Trade premium are used as a "worker bonus" for permanent employees. In a single year, the worker bonus meant an additional payment of $USD 40 per month over the minimum wage.
Affordable Health Program
SAPRIET improved the living conditions of its workers and their families by implementing a health program in the community of Buenavista at low prices. Workers now have permanent access to a well equipped dispensary, extended operation hours, medical insurance for workers and families, and a dental center.
