Coffee, the motor of local development
"The coffee cooperatives' advantage is that they are organisations that people trust", says Déo Niyonkuru, Adisco’s general secretary. "The cooperatives are owned by the farmers themselves. We can trust that their involvement in the project is substantial, because it concerns their children. On the other hand we hope the cooperatives, thanks to their great management system, will ultimately take up and finance the project themselves. That would make it a permanent thing. We call that 'Coffee, the motor of local development'."
