These beans come from Tierra Madre, a program of women producers from a cooperative in Jinotega, Nicaragua. Through their membership, Tierra Madre women receive a premium to help obtain legal title to their land. These titles are key to accessing micro-credit loans for production and other economic activities, which provide a better quality of life for the women and their families. In addition to loans for production, the program provides credit training for women and support for improving family food security.
