Fair Trade Organic Peru "Cafe Femenino"
1 LB
25 LBS

In 2003, with determination and desire for a better future, 464 female coffee producers in Peru united to take a step toward empowerment. They decided to separate their coffee production to create lots cultivated and harvested by women, seeking visibility and a voice inside their community to be able to better their lives. Working in partnership with OPTCO, they developed a market for this brand of coffee that would be an important vehicle for social change and the empowerment of poor, marginalized women coffee farmers. Working together, the Café Femenino Coffee Program was formalized in 2003 and has grown internationally.

Requirements set in place for the Café Femenino Program work to break-down cultural barriers that have prevented women from participating in the coffee economy. These requirements give the women control of revenues, land ownership, and acknowledgement for their exceptional coffee. The Cafe Femenino Program has provided a necessary structure for the women’s association to access resources to fund projects in education, health, and capacity building in self-esteem, human rights awareness, and literacy through the Café Femenino Foundation. Visible impacts have been made in self-esteem, leadership and participation, education and nutrition levels for children, household infrastructure improvements, and the overall respect for women. Women are recognized for the first time as being income providers, coffee producers, and leaders.
