ASPROGUATE, which stands for Asociacion Sostenible de Productores de Guatemala, is a collective of roughly 1900 smallholder farmers, most of whom are women.  Every year, ASPROGUATE pays 15 agronomists to travel to the various farms to help farmers improve their soil quality and plant health.  The cooperative operates in a democratic fashion, with yearly conferences where representatives from each community comes together to vote on the allocation of funds, how to expand their reach, and how to best improve the coffee and lives of its members.
