Simona Cavazzutti, President of the Confederación de Cooperativas Rurales del Paraguay – Concopar Ltda.
I was born in Milan, Italy, in 1958. I am a married mother of 4 children and grandmother to 6 grandchildren. I have been living in Latin America for almost 40 years, and am an agricultural entrepreneur. I have a degree in languages and have taken several training courses in cooperative leadership, as well as a Diploma in Social Economy. I speak five languages, Italian, Spanish, English, French and Portuguese. I have 25 years’ experience in cooperative and trade union leadership, and am convinced that cooperativism is the path to a fairer, more sustainable and inclusive world.
