Cooperativa Agrícola Marimonda Fincamar (Fincamar) is a banana cooperative in Antioquia, Colombia, in the Urabá banana growing region. It was formed in 1996 by a group of farmers affected by socio-political turmoil around the government's land redistribution efforts. The farmers of Fincamar united to share risk in a volatile environment and have more direct contact with markets. Now, the organization is made up of at least 90 members and growing. Fincamar became Fair Trade Certified™ to earn fair prices for their bananas, have direct relationships with buyers and consumers and improve the quality of life for their members and families through Fair Trade premium investments.
