Pacha is a hybrid social enterprise, composed of two forprofit organizations in US and Ecuador; and a non-profit organization in Ecuador.
We are a group of people with varying professional backgrounds that have come together with one sole objective and goal: create a more equal relationship between farmers and businesses through sustainable development projects that do not lose sight of humans and our relationship with nature.
Pacha is a social impact project. We work together with indigenous farmers and small farmers to create a new business/farmer relationship and experience.
