Cocoa Dryer for Higher Income

Gives 1 cocoa dryer
Gift Description:
$150 provides a cocoa dryer to a community in Central America to increase their crop value and raise family income. Cocoa beans that are properly taken care of reach customers at a much higher quality and provide a higher income for the farmers that grow the beans. Properly drying cocoa beans is vitally important to maintain their sweet flavor without allowing off-flavors to develop. A cocoa dryer will allow an entire community to care for their crop, sell their beans at a higher price and increase family incomes.
