Producer: JUMARP El Palto
JUMARP (Asociación de Productores Cafetaleros Juan Marco El Palto) is doing extraordinary work revolutionizing coffee production in rural Peru. We are particularly proud to support one of their innovative projects, the Mujeres program. The El Palto Mujeres program supports gender equity in the community. This certified Organic lot was produced by several Mujeres program members, all of whom are — fittingly – women.
The Asociación de Productores Cafetaleros Juan Marco "El Palto" - in short, JUMARP was founded in 2003 by José Carranza Barboza and 35 other smallholder farmers. The association was born out of a desire to develop a new, producer-focused model for growing and exporting coffee.
The cooperative noticed that women were typically only involved in the cooperative peripherally and even more rarely involved in decision making. To address this, JUMARP created the Mujeres program - named for the Spanish word for women. The program works to improve social and economic standing for women members.
To increase women's participation, they began by identifying barriers to women's active participation and then started implementing steps to help women get more involved. The Mujeres program helps women develop their skills in decision making, leadership, entrepreneurial management and teamwork. They also focus on bolstering self-esteem so women have the confidence to share their new skills in public settings and around men. Participants also receive sensory training and learn to roast to help them sell their roasted coffee at a local market and to gain a better understanding of quality.
