Honduras – Miriam Elizabeth Perez Zelaya
Inspired by her grandfather since the age of 6, Miriam Elizabeth Pérez Zelaya became a pioneer in organic coffee farming in Marcala, Honduras. In 1993, she helped form the first cooperative for exporting organic coffee in the region, and played a key role in leading to Honduras' first certified organic coffee shipment to Germany.
Her farm, 'Finca Clave de Sol,' is renowned for its diverse fruit cultivation and sustainable practices, including contour farming, organic composting, and tree planting. Miriam's commitment to organic farming reflects her dedication to preserving nature, a principle encapsulated in the 'Spiral of Life,' a concept symbolized by her farm's name.
