Peru - Cafe Femenino Organic
While women have always been crucial to coffee production in Peru, men traditionally held the economic power. In 2004, 464 Peruvian female coffee producers united to change this dynamic and take a step toward empowerment by creating the first Café Femenino co-op. Today over 800 women in six associations are involved in the Café Femenino project. Now, they feel proud to instill in their daughters the expectation that they will grow up not just with equality & independence but also to become leaders in their community.
