  • Red de Mujeres translates as 'network of women'. It comprises a large group of female coffee producers covering five different areas
    of Huehuetenango.

     

    The group is made up of more than 800 women, most of whom have been either widowed during the 36 years of civil war in Guatemala, or were left when their husbands fled the country during the coffee crisis between 2001 and 2004.

     

    Since Huehuetenango was one of the areas hardest hit by the crisis, many people decided to give up altogether and find work elsewhere, leaving their families behind.

     

    With the help of La Asociación de Cooperación al Desarrollo Integral de Huehuetenango (ACODIHUE), these female producers have been united to market their coffee and find international buyers. ACODIHUE has also supported them in training in organic farming methods, from producing and applying fertilizers, to rust and pest control methods. Our green bean importers, Falcon Specialty, work closely with ACODIHUE to improve the quality of production even further, starting with Red de Mujeres.
