Women Coffee Producer 2.0





History Logs

Project Description

Region: South America

Country: Colombia

Location: Quindio

Total Budget: $37,222

Area of Focus: Community economic development

Recover coffee production in Quindío. Motivate the generational union of farmers so that the young person is more inclined to continue in the coffee business. Continue with the idea of the mother's legacy to her children.

Find alternative income for small coffee producers with temporary crops to sell and eat, while the production of the new crop begins. Provide housing stability in the countryside and thus contribute to curbing the migration of young people from the countryside to the cities. Change the techniques for washing and drying coffee in the mills, making it more attractive to new generations of growers; revitalize the coffee plantation by cultivating new production alternatives such as corn and beans. Expand the department's coffee park, contributing to the sustainability of the Colombian Coffee Cultural Passage.

The latent need in this community is the migration of young people (sons / daughters) to the cities to seek a more productive future.

The concern of the parents for the production of their land if their children do not remain on it.

The shortage of labor for coffee production in these areas of Quindío.

The desire of young people to continue with the legacy has been detected, provided that it represents progress, use of new cultivation techniques, training, and represents economic income to their families.

Women farmers who want to continue with the crops, but do not have economic resources or up-to-date knowledge.

Convincing new generations with new ideas for the viability of coffee production.

Supply a demand for specialty coffee in the market.

Allow alternative crops during the establishment of this type of coffee.

Continuous support from the Federation of Coffee Growers on basic necessities in Colombia and the world.

Permanence of culture and idiosyncrasies in Quindío.

Continuous education transmitted by growers and specialists.

Demand for a special rate of quality coffee produced by Colombia and especially in Quindío, which has the Center for Analysis and Capture and which will be at the service of women during and after the implementation of the project.

Use of orchards and alternative crops for sale, until the coffee production is in full production to take it for sale, which has the guarantee of purchase through the coffee growers cooperatives until it reaches the final consumer, as well as sell the surplus

Women will achieve a social, environmental and economic future.

With the implementation of productive projects in coffee, implemented by women, the gender inequality gap is broken and the sustainability and expansion of the coffee park is achieved, contributing with the declaration of the Coffee Cultural Landscape and the projection of permanence of new generations in front of coffee growing.
