Lucia Mamani has been a member of Agricafe's (agricafe.com.bo) Sol de la Mañana program since 2015. The program provides agricultural and market assistance to farmers in the Caranavi region, providing agronomy training to help increase the quantity and quality of coffee from the area. The emphasis is on the quality of the coffee foremost. Increased plant nutrition, better pruning practices, and precise harvesting, all lead to an improvement in coffee quality for which the farmers receive a higher premium. These factors also naturally lead to an increase in productivity, so the farmers benefit from the program on both fronts. The farm was established by Lucia’s late husband Valeria Uluri in 1987 and Lucia has been managing the farm with her son and daughter-in-law since 2016. The farm is now ten hectares and alongside the coffee Lucia grows citrus, banana, potatoes and yucca.
