THE STORY:

Coffee is one of the world’s most highly traded commodities and women undertake approximately 70% of the field work but typically own only 15% of the land, processing facilities and traded product. In addition, women must also struggle with the gender equality that is prevalent throughout the world’s coffee growing regions. 

HONDURAN WOMEN COFFEE GROWERS
As Honduras is quickly becoming one of the top producing countries of coffee, the IWCA Honduras chapter is working to ensure that the female Honduran coffee farmers have the opportunity to create a sustainable lives for themselves and their families.

IWCA Honduras has formed a partnership with Catracha Coffee Company out of Alameda, California. Catracha Coffee Company works with a group of participating female coffee farmers in Santa Elena, a small village in Honduras, to export specialty coffee to the United States. The coffee is purchased directly from the female coffee farmers and provides higher compensation. 

HONDURAN WOMEN IN CRAFT
The IWCA Honduras Chapter is now working to identify supplemental revenue sources beyond coffee for the women of Santa Elena. The supplemental income would help the women to support themselves and their families during the offseason. The women plan to make children’s clothing to sell in local and regional festivals.

YOUR SUPPORT
Your support would allow the women to hire an instructor to teach clothing production training, to buy three sewing machines, and to buy other necessary materials to produce children's clothing.
