CPFAM-BR-09.jpgJanuary 12 | 2018

Oikocredit partner Cooperativa dos Agricultores Familiares de Poço Fundo e Região (Coopfam) is a Brazilian coffee cooperative which is helping to empower women by supporting the production of a speciality organic coffee. What makes Café Feminino so special? The organic coffee is produced exclusively by women.

Coopfam has long been something of a pioneer in organic and fair trade coffee, being the first one to produce it in Brazil.

Oikocredit funding is being used to enable cooperative farmer-members to gain access to local, national and international markets.
