Atitlan Renacimiento comes from family-owned farms that encircle Lake Atitlan at the foot of Atitlan volcano. The typical farm is just 1.5 acres and the farms have formed a cooperative in 1987 with 97 farmers, a third of which are woman-owned farms. Through Cooperativa Renaicimiento, they are able to produce organic fertilizer and apply for micro loans to help expand and diversify their income, such as beekeeping to produce and sell honey.
