CooperativeThe Kawa Kabuya Coffee Cooperative is a result of a cooperation between local farmers and international NGOs, whose main goal is to improve the livelihood of farmers. 

Members of the cooperative have seen their initial investment repaid within the first year of operations and saw their returns doubled within 2 years. Members now send all their children to primary school and many to secondary, and even to university.
