RED DE MUJERES
'NETWORK OF WOMEN'

A BEAUTIFULLY SMOOTH AND CHERRY SWEET COFFEE GROWN BY THE AMAZINGLY DEFIANT WOMEN OF THE RED DE MUJERES β€˜NETWORK OF WOMEN’.  A LARGE GROUP OF FEMALE COFFEE PRODUCERS FROM 5 DIFFERENT AREAS OF HUEHUETENANGO.

ALL OF THESE WOMEN 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 AN 2004, WHEN MANY PEOPLE DECIDED TO GIVE UP AND FIND WORK ELSEWHERE, LEAVING THEIR FAMILIES BEHIND.

WITH THE HELP OF ACODIHUE, THESE FEMALE PRODUCERS HAVE BEEN UNITED TO MARKET THEIR COFFEE AND SUPPORTED WITH TRAINING IN ORGANIC FARMING AND PRODUCING METHODS, TO RUST AND PEST CONTROL METHODS.

PROOF IN THE TRUTH THAT WE ARE STRONGER, TOGETHER.
