Abakundakawa Cooperative

Cooperative 1957 members. The Abakundakawa co-operative is a Fairtrade farmers group producing some of the finest coffee in Rwanda. Abakundakawa translates to: those who love coffee. This Rwandan cooperative with a funny name formed in 2004. In six years, it has quickly emerged as one of Rwanda's premiere cooperatives– not only in terms of producing superior coffee, but in providing the tools and infrastructure its members need, such as an increased potable water supply and repairs to roads surrounding the cooperative's central washing station. Abakundakawa is an example of a cooperative's product directly benefiting from improved living and working conditions for its members (40% of which are women).
