Trinidad's Job Creates a Ripple Effect for Her Six Daughters

Trinidad's Job Creates a Ripple Effect for Her Six Daughters

July 28, 2022

Trinidad is the youngest of 13 children and one of only two siblings who had the opportunity to attend primary school. Her first major accomplishment in life came at age eight when she got her first pair of shoes! This milestone afforded her many more opportunities in the years to come.

Today Trinidad is the mother of six daughters, and her love for them motivates her powerfully. She began working at our coffee farm just over a year ago. She and her family had been going to church for seven years, but Trinidad says her new job has allowed her to grow deeper in relationship with the Lord.

She says that the positive, Christ-centered environment and the morning devotionals with her sisters at the farm are a gift from above, and she is absolutely certain that God opened the door of opportunity to make her a part of our team!

But Trinidad's new job hasn't just been life-changing for her; it has created a beautiful ripple effect for her daughters. Two of Trinidad's daughters are now members of the sewing team at Lazarus Artisan Goods, and her third daughter just graduated from our high school and will soon continue her education at university.

Because of her employment at San Lazaro Coffee, Trinidad is able to contribute financially to her daughters' studies - something that would have remained an unattainable dream only a few years ago. And what's more, due to our commitment to thriveable wages, Trinidad makes more income than her husband, who is a foreman on another coffee farm in the area.

We tell stories like Trinidad's to remind you that your morning coffee can be SO much more than a delicious jolt of caffeine to get your day started. It can empower women in Honduras to reach their dreams - and it can change lives for generations to come.

Thank you for creating positive, empowering work for so many deserving people like Trinidad and her daughters.

Maria del Carmen's first dream in life came true at 12 years old when she got her first ever pair of shoes. Raised by loving but deeply impoverished parents, she never had an opportunity for an education and began trekking five hours daily with her siblings to try to sell eggs or corn and hopefully be able to survive to the next day.
