The Progressive Sugar Cane Producers Association was formed on January 15th, 2015 by its brave, bold and perseverant leaders - Mr. Abisur Loza (Chairman), Mr. Cosme Hernandez (General Manager), Mr. Octavio Cowo, Mr Lucilo Jimenez and Mr. Tiburcio Acosta. The Association currently leads 955 farmers with the vision of assisting its members to increase their productivity and to assist the sugar industry through economic growth. As the Association’s logo states, PSCPA has been moving forward on a steady progressive growth since its inception.
The association inaugurated its office on February 23rd, 2015 and have been operating to the best of their ability using the available resources.
On April 18th, PSCPA hosted a Free Clinic day for all members of the association and also family and friends who they wished to bring along. On May 17th, 2015 the Progressive Sugar Cane Producers Association held their first Annual General Meeting. Cane farmers came from Orange Walk, San Roman, San Estevan, Guinea Grass, Douglas, San Jose, Patchakan, Cristo Rey and San Pedro. At the meeting, the Bylaws of PSCPA were finalized and for the first time in history, cane farmers’ votes were casted through a delegate system where matters were resolved peacefully.
Now, at the end of crop 2015, the PSCPA is working diligently to increase its membership and productivity for the upcoming crop 2016. We will keep focused on a steady progressive growth!
