Product Description

LAS MARIAS GENDER PROJECT
LA PLATA, HUILA, COLOMBIA
Las Marias is an association of 350 women coffee farmers in the community of La Plata, Huila under the umbrella of the CadefiHuila Cooperative.
Las Marias was founded in September 2010 by women overwhelmed by the lack of credit available to them to use as working capital on their farms. This lack of critical credit, combined with traditional household roles and duties, was weakening their families and so they sought to change it.

LAS MARIAS GENDER PROJECT
The Las Marias group aspires to empower more women in leadership positions, include more women as cooperative members (regardless of if they are farm owners) and promote equal engagement of men and women in the community.
Main Principles of the Project:
 Gender equity in the community of La Plata, Huila
 Women’s empowerment and promoting women in
leadership roles in the community
 Financial literacy and access to capital
 Technical assistance and training to help improve
productivity and yields
 Next generation in coffee
Beneficiaries:
 350 women farmers and their families under the CadefiHuila cooperative
Las Marias’ mission focuses on food security, economic stability, entrepreneurship and passing on coffee traditions to younger generations.

LAS MARIAS GENDER PROJECT
The 2016 baseline survey identified 3 key areas of focus: financial capacity and literacy, quality improvement and productivity and yield management (the report revealed significantly lower yields on the women-run coffee farms versus familial plots).
Much of the technical assistance funding in 2016/2017 will be used in these categories.
Funding:
 Project premium of 10 cents per pound over the price of normal commercial Excelso coffee
 3 cents per pound for the farmers as additional income
 6 cents per pound for investment in the project
 1 cents per pound for Project Management and administration

These Caturra and Castillo varietals are grown at altitudes between 5500 and 6500 feet and are wet processed, then sun-dried on raised beds.
The cup is smooth and sweet with pear and red apple notes.
