"Grown on small farmyard plots by rural artisan and [indigenous] families, native cotton cultivation supports self-help development programs for the benefit of peasant communities and urban women's migrant co-operatives. In the High Jungle of Peru, native cotton has already replaced several thousand hectares of clandestinely cultivated coca leaf from which the fatally addicting cocaine paste is synthesized. Today, hundreds of [indigenous] peasant farmers benefit from the revival of native and organically grown cotton." -Peru Naturtex/Pakucho
