Rosa Pocop


Meet Rosa Pocop, a valued member of our team at Cultiva International. At 42 years young, Rosa’s journey has been deeply rooted in the community of Panajachel, where she was born and raised. She has two sons, aged 19 and 16, and lives with her mom.

Rosa’s professional journey has been as diverse as it is heartwarming. For many years, she dedicated herself to providing a warm and clean environment as a housekeeper, where her meticulous care for cleanliness and order was evident to all. However, her true passion lies in the heart of the kitchen. Cooking has always been her favorite, and her culinary skills have delighted those fortunate enough to savor her creations.

Rosa’s journey with Cultiva International began in 2013. She is not only an expert in the kitchen but also a keen learner. She has a deep love for exploring new recipes, experimenting with flavors, and creating culinary delights that are as visually appealing as they are delicious. Her dishes have become a source of pride, and she enjoys sharing her creations with family and friends.

Beyond her culinary talents, Rosa’s warm and caring nature has made her a beloved member of the Cultiva family. Her enthusiasm for learning and sharing knowledge aligns perfectly with our mission to empower individuals and communities. Rosa’s journey embodies the idea that growth and transformation are lifelong pursuits, and she inspires those around her to embrace the joy of discovery.

Outside of her professional pursuits, Rosa finds fulfillment in spending quality time with her sons and mother, creating cherished memories with her loved ones. Her nurturing spirit extends beyond the kitchen, creating a loving and harmonious home.

We are proud to have Rosa Pocop as an integral member of our Cultiva International team. Her culinary talents, dedication to personal growth, and her love for sharing knowledge make her a cherished asset to our organization. We eagerly anticipate the continued impact and inspiration that Rosa will bring to our community as we work together to create positive change in the world.

We are currently looking for a donor to sponsor her salary and other costs associated with her employment and work to advance our mission. Your gift will make it possible for Rosa to change lives.  Please contact Cultiva International’s Donor Relations Manager Adriana Sánchez at or call 202-741-9717 for more information.
