Reducing knowledge and experience gaps of women in the coffee value chain

As we close the month of March, in which we celebrate the vital role of women in our society and our economy, we continue to act for gender equality. The Inclusive Coffee project in Honduras has developed a Train the Trainers program with partner AMUCAFE (Honduras Chapter of the International Women in Coffee Alliance) to reduce the existing knowledge and experience gaps of women working in the coffee value chain in Honduras with regard to the export promotion process of their coffee. 

By considering the commercialization process as a whole, from diagnosing export capacity to price risk management, updated information on market access, effective tradeshow participation and engaging communication strategies, leaders of AMUCAFE developed and strengthened their commercial knowledge and skills, while accessing tools and resources to share with other women in their organizations.

This project is part of the Swisscontact Development Programme, which is co-financed by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), Federal Department of Foreign Affairs FDFA.

Inclusive Coffee: Promoting sustainable markets
The project seeks to reduce the existing inequalities in the sustainable coffee value chain in order to create more resilient livelihoods for smallholder sustainable coffee farmers.
