About the Growers: This particular lot is comprised entirely of women farmers associated with Cooperativa del Nororiente Colombiano, made possible by a purchasing program exclusively for women members. Participating women were pitched the program and those who decided to join received price premiums for qualifying coffee deliveries. The FNC and Cooperativa del Nororiente Colombiano both firmly believe that economic empowerment for women in rural areas (and across Colombia “rural” is often synonymous with “coffee”) is the quickest and most effective way to promote gender equality in Colombia.
