Efigenia is a member of Suma Kamaña, an association of women
quinoa farmers, whose name means "to live well" in the ancient
Aymara language of the Andes mountains.
USA-based quinoa buyer, Andean Naturals, believes strongly in
empowering Bolivian farmers and promoting sustainable agriculture
in the Andes, paying a premium for the quinoa it sources.
This helps Bolivian quinoa farmers like Efigenia to preserve their
Efigenia and her community dream of a day when they will enjoy
running water and electricity. Through our partnership with Andean
Naturals, Shared Interest is able to help. We believe her dreams
are deserving, and want to thank all of our investors and
supporters in helping to fulfil them. Efigenia says:
"To all those who help our efforts, I say on behalf of all of
us, Thank you from my heart."
