Specifically, the municipality of El Aguila is known for its abundant coffee production, which is the region’s main source of income. As a part of the Red Association initiative, individual farmers are paid fairly with a fixed minimum price to ensure a transparent payment system. This initiative has seen the household income of a typical coffee producing family double, compared with the average income in the regular market over the past 5 years.
