Years of dedication delivering the Best Coffee and transforming lives

Why Women Producers
Rural women in Colombia have suffered from the historical oblivion of the State,
the indifference of urban and rural society, and public policies that have failed to effectively direct resources to reduce gender inequality, promote their autonomy and freedoms, and
transform their living conditions.
The threefold discrimination to which the rural women for the fact that they live together culturally in a patriarchal structure, preventing them from accessing the to productive resources and assets in an equitable manner rural areas, fundamental to their social and economic development.
Having been direct victims of violence, displacement and forced recruitment in times of conflict
have affected their development and opportunities for a very long time.
After the end of the armed conflict in rural areas, women have taken a more active role in the productive structure by joining cooperatives, most of them assuming by force the role reserved for men.
Investment in training and improvements to both the environment and society has been a point that has changed their perception within their social nuclei, the economic and social results have led them to be acknowledged but even access to better markets in a fairway is a constant that affects their lives.

The ANEI association was founded in 1995 by Aurora María Izquierdo, an indigenous woman, with the aim of using coffee as a vehicle to promote their culture.
It brings together more than 600 producer families belonging to 4 indigenous Wiwa Kamkuamo Arhuacos and Koguis communities in the region of the Sierra Nevada and Serranía de Perijá, in the north of the country.
The communities are isolated and want to keep their culture and heritage protected.
The association plays a social role by allowing producers to have access to micro credits and school aid for their children.
