Farm Profile

Economist Byron Ricardo Paredes Monteros began farming in 1996 when he bought the Finca Virgen del Cisne from the Rumiñahui Bank, which had received it as a payment. On this farm he grew short cycle crops, bananas, and bamboo cane. These lots were then expropriated by the CDG in late 2008 for the construction of the BABA multipurpose project. In 2009, he bought further land in the same area and named it "Hacienda Paula Nicole" in honor of his daughter. On that farm he grew banana crops of the Williams variety, cocoa CCN-51, bamboo cane, fruit trees, and timber trees such as Saman, Guayacan, and Nem. An interesting anecdote states that the first boxes of bananas were harvested and processed on Friday, October 22, 2010: the same day and month his mother Aura Esthela Monteros Molina was born.
At the Hacienda Paula Nicole we know that the ultimate goal of all economic activity is the value of work, which promotes and appreciates the virtues of those who toil. Nature has become aware of its own existence and has manifested itself in the human brain. Therefore, human existence in itself is the thought of nature. This belief has led us to implement good working conditions and organic farming as an integral part of our agricultural activities.
