Microfinance in the fieldRSS Feed
Today we got a chance to speak with individual farmers. Two hundred of the coffee farmers that are members of COCAFCAL practice 'micro-lot production'. This means that a buyer is interested in coffee produced by one single coffee farmer so there is no modification of taste through blending.
Arriving at our destination was not easy. From Tegucigalpa, Honduras’ capital it took us another 30 minutes by plane to San Pedro Sula in the north and then four hours by car on a shaky road into the mountains where the coffee grows.
