Federación de Sociedades Coopertivas Indígenas y Ecológicas de Chiapas was founded by farmer groups from Tzotzil, Tzeltal, Mame, Chuj and Zoque. The cooperative has over 3,300 members, primarily indigenous farmers and their families. Each producer does their own wet milling and dries the coffee on their own patios before delivering the coffee to the cooperative. Since the founding of FESICH they have established a renovation program, built a nursery that now houses over two million coffee plants and offers training programs for leaf rust treatment. In addition, producer members have access to small-producer financing.
