Center for the collection and transformation of agricultural products North Zone of Rionegro
In the North of the Municipality of Rionegro (Antioquia) are located the villages San Luis, Santa Bárbara, Galicia high part, Galicia low part, Los pinos Rioabajo, La playa and La Laja, At the time it is called JULIO ESTEBAN SANIN, In the Northern municipality there are approximately 11,000 inhabitants, Like the different villages of the Municipality, these villages have undergone social, economic and urban transformations, the population has grown a lot generating the increase in constructions. This Sector at some point was named Agrarian District; since it is one of the important areas in terms of agriculture, development and the little government support has been disappearing for this important work. Agriculture is one of the most important lines in our economy, this tradition has notably diminished, but in our village there are still families dedicated to the land. The idea is that our peasants return to their fields, wielding hoes, that they begin to work, but with the hope of earning well without intermediaries, with the creation of a Center for the collection and transformation of agricultural products that aims to improve the competitiveness and profitability of the producers, and thus the strengthening and improvement of the quality of life of families.
