About us

What is GrupoPaisano?




GrupoPaisano is a holding company formed by 3 enterprises and a Non-profit Organization focused on generating impact into the economic, social, environmental, and human development areas in Mexico -an integral development scope-. GrupoPaisano with the support of national and international investors interested in its financial growth as well as being part of an innovative model, creates Impact Investment Projects that go

hand in hand with the factors that contribute to create wealth, social welfare, environmental preservation, and enhancement of human talents. Among the investors we include private as well as other national and international Investment Funds, whose interest is to create areas of sustainability in populations of high marginalization and poverty, in order to avoid the youth from migrating through the establishment of profitable sources of employment and the development of their community.

Based on a Solidary Economy –economic development of investors and producers-, GrupoPaisano generates and invests in sustainable social and productive projects guiding farming communities of Mexico to achieve a change in personal and communitarian paradigms. Investment is guaranteed by offering not only economic support to the micro and small scale producers by means of investments, but also the human training that includes professional assistance for each stage, and the transformation of their products so as to commercialize them in different markets at national and international level hence the producers have shares in the company.

With the model of GrupoPaisano, each of the entities of the Group attends to a specific area:

Inverpaisa attracts investors and administrates the Impact Investment Fund.

ImpulsoPaisano incubates the Impact Investment Projects.

ProductosPaisano commercializes the products.

CorazónPaisano ensures the development of the producer communities. The purpose is to guarantee the sustainability of the invested time and money in the field in favor of those who invest, produce, and work in it.

    MODEL

    GrupoPaisano performs a holistic and multidisciplinary job, which integrates the identification, incubation, acceleration, productive integration, and guidance to develop sustainable Impact Investment Projects in the agro-industrial sector in Mexico. GrupoPaisano deals with all the value chain, from supplies, process, and packaging, to the logistics, distribution, and marketing of each product.

    The sustainability of projects is guaranteed since GrupoPaisano accompanies micro and small scale producers in each stage of the agro-industrial process. GrupoPaisano considers the strength of human development of their communities, reinvests in them in a sustainable way, and connects with the appropriate institutions in order to increase social welfare of the population. This strategy is not commonly observed in neither financial institutions nor the available governmental programs.

    The social companies created from the Impact Investment Fund of GrupoPaisano, -whose producers are partners-, allow a comprehensive development of the community. Economical aspect, human development, social welfare, and environmental preservation are the result of teamwork.

    Integral development:

    • Profitable, solidary and sustainable economy.
    • Dignifying social conditions.
    • Environment preservation.
    • Encouraging human development.

    THE DREAM BECOMES TRUE

    In several Mexican regions, GrupoPaisano creates productive companies that maximize agricultural production of Mexican crops in asociation with those small scale farmers that, until now, did not have access to investment, technical training or the full profit from their production.

    These territories present specific characteristics: marginalized population, poverty, malnutrition and illiteracy. GrupoPaisano becomes a source of opportunity for more than five million small scale Mexican farmers who live in extreme poverty distant from government programs or from Mexican banks’ financial services.

    Apatzingán Valley, Michoacán


    The very first project developed by GrupoPaisanois located in Apatzingán Valley, Michoacán, it started with the initiative of the local small producers from Michoacán who met GrupoPaisano en el encuentro RENDRUS in RENDRUS (National Network for Sustainable Rural Development Forum) that took place in Toluca, Mexico State, on November 2013, this event was sponsored by SAGARPA.

    Financial Goal

    Invest and develop production and distribution processes for fruit juices in bulk, fruit pulps, fruit quince jelly, marmelades and dehydrated powder of fruits and vegetables produced in Michoacán. Commercialize hundred of thousands of tons of fresh products produced every year. This project belongs to an agricultural cluster supervised by the Secretariat of Agriculture, Livestock, Rural Development, Fisheries and Food (SAGARPA)and it was born with the association of 500 farmers in Rural Production Societies (Sociedades de Producción RuralSPR) that subsequently were transformed into two integrative companies that receive the required investment to fulfill the mentioned goals.

    Social Goal

    Foster the productive capacity of micro and small farmers in the region, mobilize the products that remained in the orchards unsold, offer opportunities of employment for the families of the farmers and other day laborers.

    The project “Valle de Apatzingán” includes the acquisition of 10 hectares of land for agricultural purpose in Parque Agroindustrial de Úspero –Parácuaro–, it also incorporates the purchase of industrial equipment to process more than 19,000 tons of mango, lemon, grapefruit, papaya, tomato and other endemic products per year, and the commercialization of 333,000 tons of fresh product per year in the international market.

    Crear 400 empleos directos, 60 de alta especialidad y 4,100 indirectos, resultará en un aumento sostenible en la rentabilidad de negocio a través de la eliminación de intermediarismo en la cadena de suministro y mejoras en la optimización de cosechas, procesos de empaque y comercialización, las familias beneficiadas serán 4,500.

    This project will have a strong impact in the municipalities of: Apatzingán, Buenavista, Gabriel Zamora, Múgica, Nuevo Urecho, Parácuaro and Tepalcatepec.




    Tuxtepec Region, Oaxaca


    Historically, Mexican agricultural land generated marketable agricultural product surplus, however, nowadays the increase in the amount of idle lands has reached around one million hectares, mainly because small farmers find more economically attractive to buy imported products than produce them in their lands. This is the primary reason to stimulate agricultural production oriented to self-consumption and commercialization.

    Due to the vast proportion of idle lands existent in Oaxaca, GrupoPaisano major interest is to reactivate agricultural activity and production in small communities. Tuxtepec Region – and the municipalities of Ayotzintepec, San Juan Bautista Tuxtepec, Loma Bonita and Jocotepec– devotes its efforts to produce, in best-case scenario, corn and sugar cane, generally to be used for self-consumption or animal feed, this region is highly marginalized.


    Social Goal

    Boost and reactivate commercial agriculture, in order to generate a profitable and sustainable economy based on employment generation that will avoid migration of local population.

    It involves the generation of 150 direct jobs, 20 highly qualified jobs, more than 2,000 indirect jobs and a gross impact in more than 2,150 families.





    Biosphere Reserve of the Monarca Butterfly, Michoacán-MéxicoState


    The Sanctuary of the Monarca Butterfly is located in the forests of the mountains within Michoacán and México State. This reserve is essential to the preservation of the Mexican forests ecosystem because of its diversity of flora and fauna, its great value in the Mexican hidrological conservancy, and the conservation of this lepidoptera species. However, in the last 20 years, 40% of the forest area has been lost affecting also the life of the small farmers (owners of this land in the Reserve) who can no longer perform their agricultual activities.

    GrupoPaisano approached these farmers with the help of a strategic partner, Alternare Foundation, an institution that has worked for over 20 years providing environmentally sustainable and productive methodologies to these communities; and together, we are expecting to create 20 direct jobs, 10 highly qualified jobs, more than 400 indirect jobs, and benefit more than 420 families involved in the production of organic blackberry.

    Social Goals

    1. Improve the living conditions for the communities in the zone.

    2. Offer enterpreneurial support to implement productive projects oriented to generate wealth for these communities.

    3. Preserve the protected natural area of the Biosphere Reserve of the Monarca Butterfly by promoting reforestation and avoiding logging activities.
