The participating women are all part of the 1st level Cooperative COSURCA, in the southern state of Cauca. There are about 160 participating women in the Café Femenino program, averaging 3.5 acres each. A good number of these women are single heads of household, but not all, many of have husbands with their own plots of coffee.
Currently the group is working with the Café Femenino Foundation (a grant received through CORDAID) on a two year plan to develop the integration of women into the structural rolls of the cooperative, focusing on leadership development.
