The project supports community businesses and has made significant contributions to agricultural innovation, community infrastructure construction, and support for micro businesses. It also facilitated cooperation between the agricultural and livestock sectors and local farmers and entrepreneurs.
The project has implemented the Sow for the Future joint agricultural development program, assisting industries such as coffee, bananas, beekeeping, and mushroom cultivation. By the end of 2022, the program had implemented 261 agricultural and livestock entrepreneurship projects, and 59 local value chain projects, benefiting 874 households in the local communities. In 2021, the project supported the establishment of the Cauca Riverside Specialty Coffee Association (Asociación de Cafés especiales de la Ribera del Cauca), partnering with coffee brands to strengthen local coffee’s marketability, benefiting over 1,470 community coffee farmers.
Through the PEP (Programa de Encadenamiento Productivo) initiative, aimed at supporting local businesses to form supply chains, the project has provided training to 87 local companies, helping several companies become stable suppliers of the project. In 2022, the project further strengthened its cooperation with the mining department of the Antioquia Province and the Municipal Government of Buriticá, actively participating in the Buriticá Agenda 2040, a medium- to long-term socio-economic development plan for the municipality.
The project has developed a Green Mine Development Plan, implemented comprehensive environmental monitoring in the mining area, and initiated the Continental Gold Environmental Compensation Program to plan for afforestation in areas within the mine that are suitable for greening. The project is committed to green and low-carbon development and obtained carbon and water footprint certifications in 2022. It is also a founding member of Colombia's national animal protection organization, ANIMAL BANK.
