Description

About the Source:

Asociación de Productores Cafetaleros de la Cuenca del Rio Marañón (APROCCURMA) has been working directly with 124 women producers to establish coffee production from farms owned and managed by women. A significant number of women in the northern highlands of the Rodríguez de Mendoza province rely on coffee income to support their families. They use organic practices to manage a few acres of land intercropped with shade trees, bananas, corn, and beans. APROCCURMA also provides women producers with financing, training, and technical assistance to improve coffee quality. The cooperative strives to improve the quality of life for coffee producers and their families. This lot is a result of those efforts, which will provide women producers with the revenue generated from coffee production on farms owned and managed by women.

About its name:

The Amazon River Basin is home to the largest rainforest on Earth. The basin, roughly the size of the forty-eight contiguous United States, covers some 40 percent of the South American continent, and is home to more species of plants and animals than any other terrestrial ecosystem on the planet.

The connection of divine women to sacred lakes is a widespread South American ideal. The name ‘Amazon’ was given by a Spanish explorer after he was attacked when exploring the region by female warriors named the Icamiabas. He was reminded of the old Greek myth of the Amazons and decided to call the river “El Rio de las Amazonas” or the Amazon River. Whether this legend is true or not might remain a question forever. But the impact of the Icamiabas is undeniable and the name AMAZONAS is now synonymous with this important part of the world. The power of these women warriors remains in the soul of the rainforest, and will live forever in its name.
