Today, the small-scale producers of Ye La, belonging to the Oaxacan community of Chinantla, are immersed in complex challenges that threaten their economic stability and the perpetuation of their deep-rooted ancestral traditions. Despite their efforts to revitalize local cocoa crops and encourage artisanal chocolate production, producers face the central problem of local brokers known as "Coyotes." By acquiring the producers' goods at low prices and reselling them at a considerably higher value,


This project aims to consolidate the remodeling of their workshop by providing them with the ideal conditions for producing artisan chocolate; we are fostering their economic autonomy and preserving their processes. This improvement will not only ensure the continuity of their practices. Still, it will also enhance the value of their work, giving them the recognition they deserve for their dedication to producing quality products.

Long-Term Impact

By having an adequate workspace, they will increase their efficiency in producing artisanal chocolate, boosting their profits. As a result, they will generate employment opportunities, stable income for their families, and a sense of pride in their cultural heritage. This change will not only benefit current generations but will also lay the foundation for a prosperous future for the community of Chinantla.
