Nelida Zurita is a single mother dedicated to the production of organic coffee since her husband, in a macho way, prevented her.
She is currently the leader of the woman's committee of the cooperative and is dedicated to motivate more women to produce organic coffee and to produce products such as vegetables. She also promotes the performance of women’s talents such as fabrics, embroidery and others.
She is an example for coffee producing men and women who occasionally visit her farm to learn many things. She is currently producing washed coffees with very good cup profiles. She experiments with the duration of fermentation and has separated varieties that help the best post harvest processing.
She also leads the vegetable production group in different communities that has an impact on food security and other economic income for families.
