I used to be disappointed with coffee cultivation because the price I was receiving was not even covering the cost of my production. But now, through the cooperative, I am at least seeing a little profit. I'm hoping to improve the quality of my coffee beans and increase my production with the two acres of old coffee plants I rehabilitated in 2006. I hope the additional income provided by Fair Trade prices will let me support my youngest children while they finish their education.
