The Muungano cooperative was founded in 2009 and it comprises around 4000 smallholder farmers in the South Kivu region and nearly half of those smallholder farmers are women.
Recently, Atlas Coffee Importers interviewed Daniel Habamungu Chinyabuguma, the manager of Muungano cooperative. When asked if there was anything else he would like to share with roasters about Muungano from last harvest, he said:
“We say thank you to our buyers, and we guarantee that the quality will always be very good. The biggest aspirations of Muungano is to improve the conditions of its members through the coffee sold and to be always the first cooperative in the quality of coffee in the DRC and in the world if possible.”
