Birambo Village DR Congo

Coffee Story

Coffee Story

SOPACDI is an organization made up of 5,600 coffee farmers, roughly 20 percent of whom are women, located near Lake Kivu in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Members represent several different ethnic groups and they are all smallholder farmers (with fewer than 2 hectares of farmland on average) who deliver ripe coffee cherry to SOPACDI through the organization’s 10 collection subgroups. Joachim Munganga, a farmer himself, founded SOPACDI in 2003 by restoring a washing station in the area, providing service and market access to growers living in these extremely remote highlands. Before SOPACDI, farmers had no means to transport coffee to the markets and instead were forced to simply barter their coffee locally for food, clothing, and necessities.
