Type/nr A01/16
Skrevet av Kanira Shah and Trond Bjørndal

The focus of this paper is on evaluating how Café Femenino Peru, an organically grown coffee produced by women, is successful in promoting gender equity, while being a for-profit business. Using the ‘pro-poor perspective’ of Porter’s value chain analysis as its primary methodology, this research identifies links and dynamics in the value chain of Café Femenino Peru but with a gender lens perspective. 

Results reveal that the combined increases in income and the increased access to assistance, through training and the Café Femenino Foundation in particular, has produced a big positive change.
