Details:

The Musasa Dukunde Kawa cooperative has four washing stations lying high in Rwanda’s rugged northwest. Ruli–the cooperative’s first washing station-was built by the co-op in 2003. Constructed at a vertiginous 1,999 metres above sea level, it is one of Rwanda’s highest washing stations.
Farmers who work with Musasa Dukunde Kawa have seen their income at least double, and the co-op produces some outstanding lots for the specialty market year after year. ‘Musasa’ means ‘a place to make a bed’ and ‘Dukunde Kawa’ means ‘let’s love coffee’ in Kinyarwanda-a reference to the power of coffee to improve the lives
of those in rural communities. In addition to the great work that the cooperative does with quality improvement and assurance, they also have various social programs that greatly contribute to the livelihoods of their members. School fees and medical insurance are provided along with training in quality and productivity in cultivation of coffee. The cooperative also gives cows as bonus payment for quality cherry. These cows not only produce milk for cheese, which helps improve diets and provides supplementary income for farmers, they also provide fertiliser for coffee!
