For us, talking about sustainable development is more than a fashion or a concern about climate change, because we feel it and suffer from the high rainfall that generates floods or the summers with very high temperatures, even with forest fires that cause loss of forests and species. in danger of extinction, especially when we care for and protect a natural reserve of tropical humid forest and work on the line between the conservation of forests and agriculture and the poverty of the regions due to lack of opportunities that puts the diversity of forests in danger that they end because these people have to live on something and it encourages hunting, runs out of water, etc...


It is one that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own (Brundtland, 1987, 41).

That is why for us it is important to seek a balance between: ecological balance, social progress and economic growth, that is, it is to influence the entire value chain ethically.


We all talk about poverty in the world, but where is that population? surely we came to the conclusion that in rural regions and if we add that it is there where the forests are located and all the environmental sensitivity, it makes it important to create alternatives that integrate the population, the environment with a sustainable development and that provides opportunities for the vulnerable community.

And this is what we want to do, produce by conserving and conserving by producing with a great social impact, environmental impact, with environmental education, developing the social fabric in the rural community and shared value.

And we are doing this in a rural area of the municipality of Libano in the department of Tolima in the village of San Fernando


For us, food safety is as important as the social and environmental part because one cannot be excluded from the other due to the intrinsic link that rural people have with the forest, water, fauna and because they are the first line for the conservation of the environment and we must provide job opportunities and improvement in their quality of life.

We also want the young people of the region to find work in the fields attractive and not migrate to the city to be part of the destitution cordon of the big cities; We are convinced that in order to reduce real poverty in rural areas it is important to promote and support education, because if there is a technician or professional in a family, the whole family improves their quality of life and has more opportunities to get out of poverty. in a proud and dignified way.

That is why we would have the following impacts:

One of the first things that we will do in the region are improvement programs and courses for the presentation of the academic tests of the last grade students of the village school

so that they can aspire to continue studying a professional or technical career, which will benefit about 20 students per year.

We will do a lot of environmental education, but this will be done in a more technical way that allows specialists in the management of the different species of water and forests that exist in the region to be exposed.

For example: knowing how to handle animals that are presumed to be dangerous, such as snakes, what should we do to avoid killing them? nor capture them in order to extract them from their habitat, we would do this with the entire community of the rural population.

During the next five years we will generate the following jobs:

From the second year, 10 jobs, from the third to the fifth year we would have 30 to 50 jobs, which would be the jobs that we develop in the countryside and not in the city of Bogotá to meet the objective that the products they leave directly to ports and airports from the region, which we will give priority to women heads of the family and we will support so that each worker has a student at home.

We will train the peasants to grow our products, which we will pick up in the region at a fair price and, if possible, with fair trade certifications. We estimate that some 90 families will benefit. We will do this starting in the second year.

We are sure that this business model can be replicated in other remote parts of the country, which is why we ask that you give us the opportunity to work and together we add a grain of sand to the social progress of vulnerable regions, leaving a better environmental balance and growth economic for all, that is to say a sustainable development
