Transforming Sugarcane in Panela-Process Improved

The production begins!
The production begins!

Hello dear friends,

As I told you in the last report, you have allowed us to help in a real way the community of Los Medios, because, while their visible heads have learned how to become better leaders; at the same time the community has also optimized the production process of Panela.

Remember that back in april 2013, thanks to your generosity, we could give equipment and inputs to the community, so they could produce Panela in a better way? Today, I’m very pleased to tell you that the community of Los Medios is currently commercializing their Panela production in the formal market that takes place in Granada, the closest municipality.

Nowadays the community is producing an excellent product very well packed, 100% natural and made in Los Medios. According to this new scenario, people are more confident about the economic activity they chose to make a living, and this situation has brought more people that have expressed their intention to join the existing producers to increase production quantities and sell more Panela, not only in Granada’s market, but in other close municipalities markets.

Although with the help of all of you we have made progress in achieving a better quality of life for the community of Los Medios, they still need our help to continue improving, therefore I extend again the invitation to keep supporting these people who each day send blessings to all of you.

Let's cook some cane!
