We are excited to support the Woman farmers of Honduras as a part of the Women Producing Farms program. RAOS (Regional de Agricultores Organicos de la Sierra) is known for producing outstanding lots of coffee and has decided to market its women member coffees separately because in Honduras 60 percent of women face gender-based legal issues with regards to land ownership as well as limitations to the credit they can receive. This program provides a premium to the woman farmers to help combat the gender discrimination as well as providing educational support.
