The Federación Campesina del Cauca (Farmers’ Federation of Cauca, commonly referred to as FCC) is a large cooperative representing six smaller coffee farmer organizations located in the rollings hills of Cauca, Colombia. It was founded in 1971 with the mission of serving small producers, giving them access to agronomy training and developing young leaders in the community. In that time the cooperative also worked hard to protect the rights of farmers and keep the ownership of their land—a process that required the effort of many people in the organization.
FCC maintains a membership of approximately 700 small producers, 29% of which are women. FCC is a network of small producers, cooperatively working toward strengthening their community.
