Our People

  • We are very proud of what we have accomplished in the short amount of time we have been around. La Grama is the result of all the effort put together by many people, to whom we couldn’t thank enough. All of our accomplishments are a reminder of the great family we have, and in a way, a celebration of us being together and what will come. This is why all of the members of La Grama’s family are very important; without them, we are nothing. These are some of our family members:
  • Gregorio Vivanco

    Gregorio Vivanco

    Gregorio Vivanco is a farmer that has almost five years working with La Grama. He used to sell his ginger through a local intermediate, which sold the ginger to the Lima market. Gregorio is a leader farmer in his local community: Quimishiripongo. He saw early the opportunity and encouraged some of his neighbors to work with La Grama, deciding to work directly with us. By coming constantly to the processing facility he learned the international quality requirements of ginger root, much more strict than the local ones. He learned to improve his field quality standards and therefore his productivity, which led him to get better percentages of export quality ginger and therefore better profits. With these results, he bought his own truck, which allowed him to harvest and transport his products at his own cost, without depending on rentals or charters. He continues to work with us, and improving.

  • Margarita Quispe

    Margarita Quispe

    Margarita Quispe was the very first worker who joined us in this project. La Grama employs for its ginger processing and packing facility mostly local mothers, who live very close to the facility. They have a fixed working time, which allows them to take proper care of their children, without traveling long distances nor absenting for long periods of time. Every one of them is formally employed, receiving benefits that they didn’t even know would exist, La Grama promptly pays wages, salaries, and other benefits such as overtime payments, allowances, social benefits, health insurance, retirement pension fund, etc. They have been taught how to use a bank account, where they receive their wage, and found out the benefits of saving money and being subject to credit, like our devoted worker Margarita Quispe, who got a loan from the bank to improve her house, just in front of our packing facility, making it bigger and more comfortable for her husband and their children.

  • The Hinostroza Family

    The Hinostroza Family

    The Hinostroza’s are our right hand making sure our trucking needs are fully satisfied. They are a local family from a small town in the Peruvian central rainforest called Marankiari. When we first met they owned two trucks, and they now transport all of our export products, our equipments and materials with their 5 trucks fleet. At the beginning we used their services sporadically, now we work together each and every week of the year.
