Las Diosas Nicaragua
Las Diosas (The Goddesses) is a cooperative organized and run by women in the Managua region of Nicaragua. The Coop consists of 4 smaller cooperatives, each managed by its own directive (female Board of Directors). Fiercely independent and determined to succeed in the coffee industry, the 250-member cooperative has made much progress since their founding in 1996, both in terms of sustainable commercial relations for their coffee sales as well as the promotion of issues such as women’s education, housing and health.
Las Diosas is a dynamic network of community based cooperatives run by women and supporting true development and respect for women’s rights. The cooperative describes itself as an “organization that promotes the autonomy and empowerment of rural women: that have decision-making power over their bodies, their desires, their sexuality, their opinions, the way of organizing themselves, as well as control over economic and financial goods.” Part of their goal is a food sovereignty project to promote organic farming through the production of native seeds and bio-intensive crops on their small plots of land.
