Café Femenino. It’s a great story. The foundation works through well-established in-country farming cooperatives to foster positive change not only in the quality of coffee grown but also to reduce poverty and abuse. Micro loans and grants are provided to women in the poorest and least accessible areas of coffee growing countries. Typically these women perform much of the physical labor required to grow and harvest coffee yet they have almost no influence on decisions about their family’s income. Through grants better education, nutrition and health can be provided to everyone living in those villages. Through increased quality of the coffee produced better wages can be earned!
Sonofresco is proud to support the Café Femenino program by selling high quality Fair Trade Organic Coffees from the following countries: Peru, Guatemala, Colombia and Nicaragua and FT Rwanda. For every pound of coffee that you purchase as a customer we donate 5c to the Café Femenino grant program as well as providing a better income through purchasing their coffee.
We support Café Femenino as it is such a great examples where Fair Trade prices are helping coffee communities produce good coffee for better wages and improve the lives of the people involved. Their motto is: Enhancing the lives of women and their families in coffee growing communities around the world.
