RWANDA MISOZI KOPAKAMA'S STORY

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 challenges 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 the water access for the community and has been used to help poor members buy cows. The coop has 247 women members who contribute through their individual and collective farms. - Royal Coffee Importers
