As Green As It Gets is a non-profit organization based in Guatemala striving to improve the lives of small business owners.

Started in 2004, As Green As It Gets is a non-profit organization focusing on economic development and environmentally sustainable agriculture in Guatemala. The bulk of the farmers we work with are coffee farmers. We partner with producers from impoverished Guatemalan communities. We select our families based on their potential to produce marketable products.
As Green As It Gets places a strong emphasis on protecting the environment and land restoration as an integral part of business management. We believe that economic development is the key to reversing the poverty cycle. Our objective is to lift our producers out of subsistence agriculture by helping them attain skills that can be traded for their sustenance; thereby providing excess resources beyond their survival needs.

We work on a variety of initiatives including coffee production, small business loans, reforestation, community projects, and local tourism. Our role in the projects includes helping producers develop a marketable product, fundraising, providing technical & legal support, facilitating tours, and researching new ideas and markets
