CAR Artisan Chocolate

La Colonia, Rancho Grande, Nicaragua

The story of the great people of La Colonia, Nicaragua exemplifies the incredible impact cacao can have on rural communities around the world. For year these farmers were exploited for their cacao and never truly understood the value of what they possessed. The team at Enliven understood that the only thing standing in the way of the community prospering was opportunity and support. This led to them immersing themselves within the community to be better equipped to help organize, support, and empower the community to create sustainable change through their fine cacao. With 100% of the money from the cacao going back directly to the communities, it’s  contributed to them building paved roads and an internet cafe, which only scratches the surface of their potential!
