APROMALPI - Asociación Productores de Mango del Alto Piura
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.
Construction of Office Buildings
Currently, APROMALPI does not have its own offices so every year it designates a small portion of its premium to the construction of office buildings. Fair Trade funds are utilized for the company to grow and expand, ultimately providing members with the resources to manage and oversee their entire production.
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.
