Hailing from San Sebastián, Lempira, Martha Lícida is the eldest of a family of 14 children. Her parents, Pastor Vásquez and Amelia Melgar, were cereal farmers. From a very young age, Martha was involved in farm work while also helping with household chores. Her interest in business quickly emerged, and she learned to bake bread and sweets to sell to people of her neighborhood.
After her marriage to Ángel Benitez at the age of 22, she embarked on several trips to Guatemala to acquire various goods that she later sold in her hometown. Her travels multiplied, and her business flourished until a farmer friend convinced her to venture into coffee cultivation.
It was in 1987 that she managed to purchase her first plot of land in San Sebastián. Since then, Martha has acquired several more properties and entered the coffee production industry. With the support of the Bon Café exporter, she has significantly improved her coffee cultivation and processing techniques. As a result, the quality she delivers each year stands out from that of other producers in the region.
