ASPROGUATE is an organization that represents more than 1,900 small producers from the regions of Acatenango, San Martin Jilotepeque, Coban and Atitlan. Its purpose is to responsibly transfer benefits to sustainable value chain coffee producers. In this area of Guatemala, many husbands leave to work in the US and send money back to their families, so the farms represented are majority women owned farms.

A great example of the members Asproguate represents is María Roberta Julaj, in La Providencia Aldea Patzaj San Martín Jilotepeque Cooperative group. As a single mother, Doña María has worked in coffee for over 25 years. For the past 3 years she's worked with Asproguate and organic certification. At altitudes between 1900 and 2050 MASL, she grows beautiful, healthy Bourbon trees. Doña María has one boy and three girls, and is incredibly dedicated and diligent.
