Tuesday, May 19, 2009

The $100 million Financial Support Trust from the placement of treasury bonds for coffee sector producers was created after the coffee crisis in 2001.

Jessica Gramajo wrote in an article Sigloxxi.com: "In 2006, the budget allocation for the Trust was $4 million (36Q million), which was debited in its totality through modifications, and nothing was implemented, according to data from Finances. The same thing happened in 2007 and 2008, but the amount allocated was $7 million (Q60 million) each year. The information provided by the Treasury portfolio indicated that "there is no budget assignation" for the current fiscal year.
