Sustainable Finance as a driver for FSC Solutions

FSC Denmark


Nelly Arroyo, Allpabambú

Nelly Arroyo was the manager of Ecuadorian firm Allpabambú and has training and experience in administration and a background in financial management of health NGOs. She began managing bamboo plantations in restoration efforts in 2007. In 2018, Allpabambú accessed a small funding fund from FSC International, to train in the implementation of the Forest Management and Chain of Custody standard, the same that was supported by the FSC office in Ecuador. Allpabambú achieved group certification of 140 hectares of bamboo and was pioneer in the application of the Ecosystem Services Procedure in the maintenance of water sources, making this initiative a learning scenario for small bamboo and Balsa producers in the provinces of Manabí and Esmeraldas and opening market opportunities in the USA and Spain.
