Finca Villa Lobo is a banana project in the Dominican Republic. In preparation for their Fair Trade certification, the farm workers created the trade union "Asociacion de Trabajadores Finca Villa Lobo." Since then they have completed different successful Community Development projects. The pictures below show the first step in their Community Development plan- the first assembly and the democratic election of the union officials.

The trade union developed its first Community Development project which was to update its sanitary facilities in the village. Below are a few pictures of the plan being put into action!
