More than 500 MILLION PEOPLE are dependent on coffee FOR THEIR LIVELIHOODS, and of that number, 25 million are coffee farmers who typically live and work in substandard conditions and receive only a small percentage of the actual price that the coffee is sold to the consumer. Women, who represent a good majority of coffee farmers, face additional challenges.
