Coffee produced by: Unicafec – Asociacion Union de Cafetaleros Ecologicos, SOPACDI, Democtratic Republic of Congo & SOPEXXCA – Unión de Cooperativas Agropecuarias
"Some things in life can be complex. Fair trade can be complex, but when we at Equal Exchange discovered that the huge contribution women make in the production of coffee was still going unpaid and unrecognised, we felt that there had to be a solution."
"I am such a different person now to who I was before. I didn’t like to speak before and would always run away. I’d feel too shy to talk and would want to disappear. There are a lot of women who are too scared to become organised and go to meetings, these are the people who still need our help. This is why I will continue to work for our visibility and value - Norma, coffee farmer from Nicaragua"
