Each of the unions in the Chapare has collection centers for coca leaf where small farmers sell its production 3 or 4 times a year. There's largest producers engaged in the distribution and wholesale in Sacaba or retail markets in the area that buy these small crops. The price in these markets is slightly below than in the central market in Sacaba and is directed and governed by the unions themselves. All transactions in these markets should be regulated by DIGCOIN. But sometimes this is very complicated and producers who sell crop between them without regulation. On the basis of production are the producers and trade unions which should ensure the fate of coca.
