B.S.C.F.A. Proceeds With Disbursal of Checks Despite Fair-trade Warning

But despite that clear warning from fair-trade, today officials at the B.S.C.F.A. are busy preparing to disburse checks to the almost five thousand five hundred registered cane-farmers in Orange Walk and Corozal. So long story short, if that money is disbursed, the projects come to a crashing halt. The decision has been causing no end of concern and frustration in the Association which is caught between a really big rock and a really hard place.

Ezequiel Cansino, Chairman, Committee of Management, B.S.C.F.A.

“The eighteen directors took a decision that we would only be disbursing one point five million to the cane-farmers due to the fact that if we disburse this four million we will be completely collapsing the organization, and in our intent to save the organization and to keep it functioning we decided that we would only be disbursing one point five million. But today the feedback that we received from the cane-farmers is that they don’t want to accept that one point five. They want the four million that was approved or passed by the assembly. The effect of this decision is very tremendous. It is the collapse in the sense that we have to lay off some of our employees or maybe all the employees because all those projects that were approved in November…we will not be able to deliver them to the cane-farmers because that is the same money that we would be disbursing to them.”
