Success Stories

Granja Huevo de Oro is a Costa Rican company founded 11 years ago by Karol Flores.  It produces, markets, and distributes organic, natural, and cage-, hormone-, antibiotic-, vitamin-free eggs.  

Although farm production was increasing, Karol had been having trouble placing the product in large hotel chains. In 2016, she decided to get certified with WEConnect International and, as she says, "WEConnect International marked a before-and-after for Granja Huevo de Oro. Getting certified as a women-owned business and the connections made through WEConnect International opened doors we had been knocking on for a long time."
