De la Gente works with coffee farming communities to create economic opportunity that improves the quality of life for their families and communities.
Ask people in Guatemala what they want most and they won't mention aid or charity. What they want are opportunities - to education, to financing, to build businesses - so they can be self-sufficient and provide for their families. They have the intelligence, drive, and desire to succeed, but lack the specific training, education, and access to markets to sell their products.
De la Gente helps create the access needed to succeed and prosper. By providing the people with whom we work the necessary skills, knowledge, and tools, we are able to work together to create sustainable and profitable businesses with long-term viability. With increased income, they are able to invest in the education, healthcare, housing and nutrition needed for healthy and thriving communities.
De la Gente has three pillars: Coffee Business, Cooperative Assistance, Community Tourism
