Alpaca products

According to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), Bolivia is the world’s second largest producer of alpaca cattle.

Small producers have sought to incorporate a new value-added component into livestock production: the manufacture of alpaca articles.

The project seeks to strengthen fair trade principles and improve the quality of life for communities.
