The Muungano Coffee Cooperative was founded in 2009, and has grown to a membership of 5223, 1506 of them women. They have 4 washing stations along Lake Kivu serving communities to the north and south of their headquarters and cupping lab in Kiniezire. The members have an average of 2 hectares of land each and tend to dedicate just under half of that to coffee. They are Bahunde, Bahavu, Bashi, Batembo and Congolese of Rwandan origin, people who used to be divided but now focus on togetherness (muungano in swahili) to promote their coffee and achieve better prices. They also focus strongly on gender justice and empowering their female members, sustainable agriculture and organic practices, coffee quality and business training.
