“As a young girl, I never dreamed that one day I would be a landowner nor a coffee producer" said Lesbia. Today she is one of the largest exporters in the San Miguel Escobar Cooperative and a role model for her children showing that hard work and dedication pays off and women can set big goals and acheive them. Read on to learn her powerful story.

Valeriana, 24, mother of two (soon to be three) began her work in coffee the same way as many women do: processing beans that are grown and harvested by other farmers. Her first year she only exported a few hundred pounds, but this year her goal is 3,000 pounds. Read on to learn how an investment from De la Gente's Women's Fund is helping her to reach her goal.

A First-Hand Account of Angel Zuleta Martinez’s Life in Coffee

 I didn’t know anything about processing coffee when I first joined, but other members taught me everything I know. Now I have three cuerdas of land for growing coffee. I want to buy two more but am waiting for the right plots of land to become available for purchase. We have big goals when it comes to coffee. We want to grow our production every year, this is why I am buying more land. It is a huge benefit for my wife, for both of us, to work together at home and raise our growing family.
