Bolivia - Coca Farmers

A Bolivia coca farmer from the Yungas regions rests on top of sacks of coca leaves at the Villa Fatima coca market in upper La Paz. Coca farmers arrive in La Paz everyday after a five hour drive through one of the most dangerous roads in the world. The farmers sell their coca leaves for 2.25 to 2.50 US dollars a pound to the middlemen who then distribute the leaves to the markets in Bolivia, Argentina and Brazil. The recently established government of former coca farmer president Evo Morales is pushing for the legalization of the coca plant to increase export of derivatives while at the same time promising to fight drug traffiking and cocaine production in Bolivia. | Location: La Paz, La Paz, Bolivia.
