Women Producers Series – Cooperative RAOS (Honduras)


Our second installment in the Women Producers Series comes from Cooperative RAOS out of Honduras.

Tasting notes: Meyer Lemon, Red Berries,  Spiced Nuts.


One of the main reasons Cooperative RAOS  is determined to market its women members’ coffee is that sixty percent of women face gender-based legal issues with regards to the ownership of their land, as well as limitations to the credit they can receive to finance the harvest every year. In addition to the program premiums these women receive for this lot, Cooperative RAOS has many very active educational support programs open to all members. Gender assemblies are held by female members in order to discuss the women’s needs, as well as ways of increasing equity within the group and community.

“Gender equity means that women and men have the right to equal and fair access to the use, control, and benefits from the same goods and services of society, as well as decision making in the areas of social, economic, and daily life, as well as politics.” This is Cooperative RAOS’ mission statement with regards to gender, a philosophy that the organization supports though the development of training farms, as well as integrated farm-management programs, and in increasing access to these programs as well as organic-farming support to all members and the women farmers in particular.
