Monica Valle, CEPICAFE (sugar), Peru
Life has improved for everyone since we became organized. We have stable prices, and this all means progress for our families.
Monica, 35, is now able to plan for the future for her family. She’s a mother of two who has been harvesting sugar cane as part of the Cepicafe cooperative since 2002.
Before joining the cooperative, Monica never knew if her family would have enough income from one year to the next. Fair Trade has brought better, more stable prices and a consistent income.
