The Story of FEDECOVERA’s Growth


Rooted in the rich Mayan Q’eqchi’ and Poqomchi’ Heritage, a resilient cooperative has been leading locally led development projects for more than 40 years, showing the development community how they can be an ideal partner to implement projects in Guatemala. The Federation of Cooperatives of Las Verapaces, or FEDECOVERA. R.L., is a second-level cooperative established in 1976, by small-scale producers who organized first-level cooperatives to bolster the economy and enhance living standards in the Las Verapaces communities. FEDECOVERA’s mission is to continue its trajectory as a nationally acclaimed cooperative and remain committed to delivering services that promote members’ sustainable development, governance, and profitability.
