COOSEMPODA is a multiple services cooperative established in 1995 in El Mojón, Jinotega – Nicaragua, originally solely as a credit and saving cooperative. Their primary produce market is selling cabbage to mainstream retailers. They are seeking to upgrade their current processing plant to improve washing capacity and meet hygiene requirements. Additionally, they want to expand their seedling production capacity and develop protection structures that would allow them to increase production of sensitive crops such as tomatoes and green pepper. Finally, they plan to purchase a refrigerated truck to streamline transport of their produce directly to supermarkets.

COOPEASSA is a relatively long-standing cooperative. COOPEASSA’s members have felt the need to expand to a crop that generates an income year round. The income from coffee is just once a year. It has therefore entered into the production of a variety of exotic fruits like pineapple and banana. By providing subordinated debt, Kampani’s investment will allow for an accelerated expansion of the acreage devoted to the production of organic pineapple, enabling COOPEASSA to tap into this promising and high-margin niche market.
