Crushing poverty is a reality in coffee growing countries. 70% of the work is performed by women. A coalition has formed to offer women producers much needed resources. Women of Coffee Microfinance, IWCA, WomeninCoffee.org, and Rotary Action Group for Microcredit (RAGM) are raising money, offering access to credit and financial literacy training.
Current microfinance programs in El Salvador, Mexico, Colombia, and Guatemala are all paid back at 100%. This is almost unheard of. Roasters in North America are donating premiums for technical assistance, empowerment training, management seminars, nurseries, schools, clinics, improved washing stations, and dry mills. The sustainable impact is being measured, replicated, and rewarded.
