“Outside the Asoguabo, a small producer receives very unstable prices, sometimes USD 4 or 5 per box less than what I get at Asoguabo. In such a situation, my 5 brothers (also partners) and I could not support our parents, even worse paying for their medical care. I have been able to improve my baler with the FLO award during 2016. We received fertilizers, Christmas bonus, Christmas baskets for me and my workers. A school voucher and backpack for my godchildren. I feel very good to be able to do all that with the support of Fair Trade. “
