70% interest rates are greedy, predatory, and keeps farmers in a cycle unable to reach their full potential.
Alisha learned about the systemic injustices and inefficiencies that keep coffee farmers shackled to debt first-hand from the farmers themselves.Coffee farmers face interest rates as high as 70% when buying the necessary equipment to operate their farms– stifling their ability to be profitable, build their communities, and support their families.
Imagine the impact you can make by simply dropping the 0 off the 70%
It is especially difficult for women coffee farmers to make a living. Less than 20% of coffee farms are women-owned, and less than 10% of women are able to obtain export licenses.
How cool would it be to have a hand in breaking the chains that keep these women and other coffee farmers from reaching their potential– simply by enjoying their hand-picked coffee.
