Gloria Rodriguez is the owner of a group of farms she collectively calls Stricta Alturra. Al of her micro farms are located in the Apaneca region of western El Salvador. She has won an award in the Cup of Excellence every year she has entered. The farms consist of Finca San Jose, Finca El Porvenir, Finca Nejapa, Nueva Granada and La Lagunitas along with her daughter and son-in-laws farm La Gloria. All the farms are on the same volcano and all are within a very close proximity.
