The project focuses on coffee production improvement projects. Initially, the group started by planting 2,500 coffee trees and installing parabolic drying tables. The mission of the project is centered on family prosperity and generational renewal. The project focuses on food security, economic stability, entrepreneurship and passing on coffee traditions to younger generations. Coffee production is used as the vehicle to drive important change and development. By prioritizing gender equality and inclusive decision-making in households and on farms, the group is able to receive credit and ownership. This empowers other women to join the group and allows for many of the existing women in the group to take on leadership positions as cooperative members regardless of their status on the farm.

 

Today, Las Rosas is a group of 350 strong women with 50 women in leadership positions, all working as a team on coffee production improvement projects. The farms throughout Huila produce sweet and fruity Colombian coffees.
