Fair Trade certification has enabled the organization to achieve a better market trade where we can sell our coffee and have higher incomes. Also, it has allowed us to provide better living conditions and opportunities to our families in terms of food, health, education and management to invest in our plots ”
Oscar López Hernández, Supervisory Board
In the conversation and production program, it is very important to us continuously renovate our small plots from old, sick plants in order to keep producing good coffee and be able to support our family. ”

Producer Savings Fund
Based on a communal decision to help producers in times of financial need, Triunfo Verde provides each producer with the chance to save premium funds to use at a later date. A checking account is provided and statements are printed out for all members to verify transparency.
Installation of Solar Panels
Triunfo Verde allocated a portion of the Fair Trade Premium to install solar panels, which will supply electricity to the homes of 60 members and their families as well as the collection, processing, and drying center they use.
This is the fourth year that Triunfo Verde has focused on increasing healthcare availability for its members and surrounding communities. The focus is currently on three main types of healthcare: (1) General medicine, (2) Pediatrics, (3) Chronic diseases, such as diabetes, cancer, hypertension, etc. Traveling clinics are making the rounds throughout member communities to be able to provide these healthcare services when traveling and other circumstances prevent members from seeking healthcare elsewhere.
