Abstract: The domestic agenda for productivity and competitiveness of the Department of Huila includes definite commitment to productive agribusiness by aiming to boost the production and marketing of products as the cocoa. The lack of modernization of crops, the scarcity of work forces, low yields per hectare, market prices, technical absence of the state and the low associativity of the actors in the production chain in the district are problems detected in the studies by the National Technical Committee of the National Council of cocoa. Using MATLAB Software, the identification of the cost and demand functions of cocoa production in the Guadual District is performed. The Guadual District of the Municipality of Rivera is where the 27 cocoa producers immersed in this diagnostic live. In this part of the study, elements were analyzed that were associated with productivity and associativity as well as different social processes within the community. In the district the Guadual the production chain was characterized considering socioeconomic and educational aspects to the climatic and organizational culture to generate an efficient and effective model to increase productivity of the chain in the region. The proposed model is based on changing the behavior of the inhabitants of the village through ongoing training, motivation of individual interests and improvement of the conditions for cocoa producers.
