Mukamazera Rosa was born in 1934 and has been farming coffee all of her life. She joined the cooperative at 74 years old in 2006 with 100 trees she shared with her husband, and now she has 200 of her own coffee trees that she cultivates. She says that since joining the cooperative she has learned better agronomy skills and knows how to care for her trees through mulching and fertilizing. Four of her children were not able to attend school because she couldn't afford school fees, but wIth the increased income she receives from her fair trade coffee she has been able to send her last child to school, who will is on track to graduate from university. She says she can now buy food and clothes instead of growing & making her own. Water-borne illnesses used to be common for her children, but she invested some of her increased income to get better quality water at her home.
"We put a lot of effort into growing and processing our coffee. We work hard to grow the highest quality coffee." - Mukamazera Rosa
