* 1lb bag * Honduras is one of the most violent countries in the world, the original banana republic, twisted and misshapen by drug trafficking, gang violence and corruption. It is also home to some of the most hopeful projects in the world, supported by Fair Trade premiums. Dozens of cooperatives are certified Fair Trade and are improving the lives of their farmers with health and education projects, including schools for farmers’ children. There is “Feminine Coffee” produced by women only farmers. There are innovations on adaptation to climate change as the country is beset by drought and plant diseases related to the increased humidity that comes with rising temperature. All this is common in the Fair Trade experience and mission. The cooperative, Cooperativa Agropecuaria Regional Santa Barbara Intibuca Limitada (“CARSBIL”), located in the community of San Nicolás, in the Department of Intibucá, was established in 1998. It is an organization whose main business is the marketing of coffee, but among its goals are: diversify and implement new projects, generating higher revenues, allowing greater profits and cohesion of the members.
