"Misozi Kopakama" Cooperative
Fully Washed / Roasted Medium-Light / Balanced Fruit + Orange + Raspberry
The 1994 Rwandan genocide left thousands of widows and orphans to provide for their families. In 2008, a group of 180 women from the KOPAKAMA Cooperative came together to form a Women’s Group. The focal point of the group was to share in the challenge of rehabilitating coffee fields in order to earn a better living in the absence of their husbands. The women raise funds through their coffee sales to plant a collective coffee field called Ejo Heza, or A Beautiful Tomorrow. The money has also been invested in water access for the community and has been used to help poor members buy cows.
