COLPAJ was founded in April 2021 by its 25 members to increase access to markets and create a greater social impact through coffee and cacao cultivation.
COLPAJ is also dedicated to creating sustainability within their organization. This includes involving women in decision-making and increasing female membership.
COLPAJ firmly believes in the equitable treatment of women in co-op and farming activities. They also hope to increase youth involvement, specifically with marketing activities.
Currently, COLPAJ sells their products locally, but is looking to access larger markets with the assistance of a website.
As a business that is looking to diversify their products in the near future, they need a platform that will help market their existing and future products.
COLPAJ has worked on developing a web page, however, they do not know how to do so in an appealing manner that also allows them to sell and promote products on the site.
With the assistance of a Farmer-to-Farmer volunteer, COLPAJ will be able to access larger markets and establish new business relationships.
