All his life, Roberto Killmeate has been bringing people and resources together in order to put them to work for the benefit of the poorest rural communities in Argentina. Bob founded and worked with different organizations such as CAVE, an organization dedicated to mobilizing resources, volunteers, and the will of slum dwellers in a collective process for constructing homes and PROINCA, an organization dedicated to training and empowering campesino (peasant) communities to fight for land titles. In 2002, he launched SURCO PATAGONICOS to introduce rural marketplaces to vast regions of the Patagonia that have sorely lacked this basic economic infrastructure. These cooperatively managed and vertically integrated markets allow rural families to substantially increase their monthly incomes by providing an effective distribution outlet for their products.
