Cooperativa Agraria Cafetalera La Prosperidad de Chirinos Ltda. (Coop Chirinos) is an agricultural social enterprise and a partner within GP’s Smallholder Farmer Market Access initiative.
Coop Chirinos serves farmers in the rural highlands of northern Peru. Each cultivate, on average, less than three hectares of land, primarily to grow coffee. Farmers who work with Coop Chirinos receive training, inputs, and higher priced purchase contracts due to the Coop’s relationships with international buyers who pay a premium for Fair Trade, organic, and specialty coffee varieties.
