Flhor Zelaya Ontreras is located in the Marcala, Honduras region near the pyramids of the Mayan King, 18 Rabbit (Uaxaclajuun Ub’aah K’awiil) where she manages an all-female cooperative and runs her farms biodynamically. She started her first farm when she was just five years old and was already focused on growing organically. Now, as an adult, Flhor is committed to changing the coffee culture in her area and total sustainability of the land. Her Biodynamic certification guarantees that the coffee not only has the absence of chemical pesticides and fertilizers, but that the planting of the coffee works with the ecosystem rather than disrupting it. She is in the process of submitting a grant to the Cafe Femenino Foundation, to begin an entrepreneur program for indigenous women in the nearby mountains. For her hard work, Flhor earns 300% higher wages than the Fair Trade minimum.
