The lands were sold to farmers for a loan made to the National Development Bank (BNF), which included a bonus with Certificates of Guaranteed Liabilities (CPG).
Lavayen said “in June we benefited from the CPG project: every acre was worth $ 6,000, but with the bonus of CPG it dropped to $ 3,000. That remaining money was lent to us by the BNF,” she explained. Meanwhile beneficiaries of the land have been concerned for several months because of the risk that the property, which was managing the property, was given as a pledge to COFIEC. Lavayen said authorities of Ground Plan of the Ministry of Agriculture said that these lands were not the problem.

AGM Both belonged to the brothers Isaias Dassum until 2008, when the state seized and handed over the administration to the Colonel Darwin Puma and later to Esteban Garzon Cisneros.
