In 1990 Emilio Jimenez Castro inherited 6ha of land from his father. The land was originally used for cattle, however, when Emilio took over the land, he decided to invest in coffee. He purchased a further 7ha of land and established the farm.  Finca San Francisco also produces avocado, citrus and other fruits. The coffee from San Francisco is processed at ASOPROAAA. The Association of Agricultural Producers of
 

Acosta and Asserí, ASOPROAAA, was established in September 1998, following the devastating destruction in the region by Hurricane Mitch.  The association consists of more than 1,100 families producing coffee, citrus and farming cattle in the areas of Acosta, Jorco and Palmichal. ASOPROAAA offers financial, commercial and technical assistance to members, and employs dedicated programs to improve the livelihoods of members of the community.

More than 2000 houses were built for people with limited resources as part of a special program initiated by the association. ASOPROAAA has been influential in the revival of agricultural production in the area following Hurricane Mitch, and a pioneer in the processing of micro lots by its members. Lots from ASOPROAAA have won numerous quality awards in addition to regularly placing in the finals of the Cup of Excellence competition.
