Project Objectives

Kampani, a social impact investment fund focusing on the 'missing middle', helped finance the acquisition of a coffee hulling plant in Burundi called Horamama. The factory is primarily owned by COCOCA, a Fairtrade certified coffee exporter and union of cooperatives representing almost 27.000 smallholder coffee farmers. To establish this deal the following organisations were involved: the King Baudouin Foundation, Broederlijk Delen and Alterfin (which has been providing trade financing to COCOCA for several years).

Cera offered a training on cooperative governance to the Board of COCOCA and the Board of Horamama to strengthen both organisations and the collaboration between them. The training was funded by Broederlijk Delen.

Summary

Training on cooperative governance to strenghten the performance of the second degree cooperative of cooperatives of coffee farmers and the hulling plant they acquired.
