Angela Camposeco, CODECH (coffee), Guatemala

Coffee farming has been an important part of Angela’s family for generations. A proud grandmother at 49, she produces coffee with her husband while teaching her daughter and grandchildren the trade.

Fair Trade Mother's Day quoteWe work hard every day to produce good coffee and improve the lives of our children.

Angela recently joined a women’s group within her cooperative that is working to sell women’s coffee while promoting gender equality, preventative health and education. Many of the women in her community are illiterate and barely speak Spanish. Angela believes that Fair Trade will bring knowledge and empowerment to her granddaughters, who may someday take over her farm.
