Cooperval Craft Beer

For over 10 years, Divina and the women from Cooperval produce, process and sell frozen fruit pulp, vegetables and baked goods to feed the schoolchildren in Formosa, Goias. The group wants to boost production and increase their income. In order for them to pay for the financing, Moeda developed a Seed Project focused on the baru, a traditional chestnut from the region. Our business plan provides for a partnership with a local brewery to produce 1,500 bottles of baru craft beer. We will also act in co-branding with the \"Dona Divina Baru Beer\". With the revenue from sales, the cooperative will pay the initial contribution of US$ 8,000, including fees, in December 2018. They will also develop the production of baru seedlings and spread the cultivation to more than 3,000 families, turning extractivism into an environmentally relevant commercial activity. In addition, equipment will be purchased to boost productivity using little water and minimal electricity.

Take a look closer at the project
Cooperval brings together 170 families and is located more than 50 kilometers from the base in Formosa in Central Brazil . The women prepare traditional recipes making breads, jams and sweets using native fruits and supply schools in the area through government programs (PNAE). It`s now time to scale-up, conquer new markets and increase the prosperity of the cooperative and the region. Moeda is helping with funding and is also enabling the payment of this financing through the baru craft beer project. In addition to increasing production and profit, this Seed Project will bring sustainability and make an impact on the region.
