La Asociación Coordinadora Salvadoreña de Pequeños Productores Organizados (CESPPO) is a collaboration of small farmers working on various issues, including fair trade, land rights and the environment. CESPPO formed in 2012 under the umbrella of CLAC, which is an association of farmers in Latin America and the Carribean. The mission of CLAC is to represent and promote the interests, empowerment, and development of its members and its communities.
CESPPO is the national figure that represents the small producer organizations working in the area of fair trade in El Salvador. CESPPO’s work includes a focus on gender equality, which is why it was chosen to be an ESPERA partner. Mary’s Pence expects the ESPERA partnership will help women to develop economic initiatives in the different locations where CLAC focuses its work.
