Going Deeper

The Cafe Femenino Foundation works within existing socioeconomic structures to foster change.  Despite ongoing progress, gender inequality, poverty and abuse
continue to be rampant in many coffee production regions.  Although most women coffee producers participate in all farm activities, they have few rights and little voice when it comes to selling their coffee or making decisions on how the family income will be spent.  With no control of income and very few options, these women hold out hope for a better life. The foundation helps promote the integration of women coffee farmers into social, political and occupational organizations by providing grants that help support the women’s efforts and enhance their status within the community. In doing so, the foundation is able to help improve the overall quality of life for the entire community and support a sustainable economic system.

Empresa Cooperativa del Sur del Cauca (COSURCA) is composed of 15 farmer associations and coffee cooperatives from four municipalities in Cauca, a mountainous province of Southwestern Colombia. COSURCA’s 1,090 members have a strong organization and financial stability as a result of Fair Trade, and have implemented the following measures: Stop cultivation of more than 1,800 acres of coca and poppy and eradicate more than 500 acres of coca. Retained their land and maintained their organic certification. (Organic coffee production is a tradition that began in the area more than 100 years ago.) Savings are allocated to members providing the funds to grow a variety of fruits and vegetables for home consumption. Composting programs in several communities help generate organic fertilizer and reduce waste.
