“Before we started the pepper cooperative we had to travel very far to other towns to buy peppers. Now people can buy peppers directly from us. The project also improves people’s economic capacity. They have some money in their pockets when they sell peppers.” Roslyn, Mont Organise leader
The Pepper Cooperative involves 55 OPODNE leaders. Last year they made a profit of about $400. Next year they want to double the profits and add beans and goats.
