We believe in the importance of being transparent in everything we do. Therefore, we open our books to you so that you can see our costs, our expenses and our profits. We show you how we invest every cent in educational projects.

With a retail price of Q.65.00 [approx. $9.00USD], we generate a profit of Q.35.78 [approx. $4.77USD] per bag which is 100% invested in educational projects.
in profits obtained from these sales, have already been invested in high school education for teenagers at the Cocolá Grande village and neighboring communities.
