Liliana and Eliana Aguilera were raised in Santa Cruz, Bolivia in an agricultural family. They seperately went to the United States to attend University, but the connection to the culture and traditions of their childhood remained strong in their hearts and minds. It became increasingly important to bring positive change to their home country that was rich in culture, but whose people were often in need.
Eliana returned first and went to work practising Clinical Therapy. Liliana returned shortly after and they began discussing ideas to bring large scale change to the people around them. They saw markets full of high quality, organic foods and set out to share these amazing products with the world and simultaneously benefit the small, community-based indigenous farming groups who often needed help connecting internationally. It was through these ideas and collaborations that Andean Pride was born.
