This video by CERAI presents AGROCAINE (Caine Farmers Association) as an economic peasant organization dedicated to transforming fruits produced in the valleys such as guava, tumbo fruit, lemon, and tubers like sweet potato. In 13 years of institutional life, it has involved 60 families directly and 150 families indirectly, all small farmers that prior to this initiative were characterized by subsistence economy and were unable to produce anywhere near enough for the market. AGROCAINE was chosen as an example of good practice in the social and solidarity economy in Bolivia.
