Gildardo is one of the newest farmers with whom Osito Colombia has been working and one of the very few new relationships amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Gildardo is also the first and only producer with whom we partner in the municipality of Paicol, in western Huila, near the shared border with Cauca. His attention to detail and eye-popping results on the cupping table have brought him deep into the fold of Osito and we're so excited to work
with him.
Gildardo is a husband to Yolanda Bolaños and father to four kids ranging in age from 17-22.
