Background
Written by administrador

We, the Comprehensive Trading Cooperative Maya Ixil R.L., in response to the need to improve regional coffee and other product prices, constituted ourselves as a group of small crop farmers who achieved having certified organic coffee plots.

We are located at Aldea Santa Avelina, municipality of San Juan Cotzal, in Santa Cruz del Quiche, at 280 kilometers in the North West side of the Capital City.

In 1998, we constituted ourselves legally as a cooperative. We began with 28 partners and are currently 182 partner families dedicated to the production of quality coffee and honey through the improvement of agriculture techniques for crops.

We organized ourselves to perform a better job and had training and technical assistance to strengthen our knowledge.
