Luis Mastroeni, Director of Corporate Relations and Sustainability at Dos Pinos, said that "... when approving the financing, the German Development Bank placed great value on the unemployment in sustainability that Dos Pinos has had, as well as the local production that generates income for our 1,300 producer associates and more than 5,000 collaborators, especially in the communities with a cooperative presence."

Monika Beck, member of the Board of Directors of the German Development Bank explained that one of its goals "... is to stimulate the growth of local businesses in growing markets and through this loan with Dos Pinos, we also support its great commitment in areas such as education, health, and sustainable waste management."

This loan will increase the cooperative's liquidity to strengthen its market position in the face of the new challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic in the food sector, according to an official statement.
