THE STORY

The Red de Mujeres or Network of Women is a large group of female coffee producers covering five different areas of Huehuetenango. The group is made up of 830 women but this particular lot comes from the San Antonio Huista area and is the product of 50 producers. 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 rust crisis(a plant disease) between 2001-1004. Since Huehuetenango was one of the areas hardest hit by the crisis many people decided to five up all together and find work elsewhere, leaving their families behind.

With the help of ACODIHUE these female producers have been united to market their coffee and find international buyers. ACIDUHUE has also supported them in training in organic farming methods, from producing and applying fertilisers, to rust and pest control methods.
