The AMPROCAL is an association for women producers based in the Ocotepeque department of Honduras.

Located West of Honduras near the border of El Salvador and Guatemala, the project was created to allow women and their families to help develop the cup quality Honduras biggest export.

As a Fairtrade certified Association, The AMPROCAL provides women with the resources to grow a sustainable crop, while giving them a gateway into pushing their product to market and receiving a fair price in return.

The association helps provide the women with technical support, offering training and assistance in agronomic farming, such as the use of organic fertilisers, which in turn will bring an improved, more environmentally friendly product to market.

The more education and enthusiasm from the farmers, the better price they will receive for their product, while also unlocking access to low interest credit to help the farmers expand the productivity and sustainability of their crop. In return for the hard work of the farmers, the AMPROCAL implements social projects in the village and surrounding areas of the farm, to supply community social events and celebrate the consumption of the community’s own produce.
