Description

Gathaithi Farmer’s Cooperative Society is located on a saddle between Mt. Kenya and the Aberdare ranges, putting it at the center of Kenya’s Central Highlands. Their factory is a short drive north of Nairobi, about 160km as the crow flies, in Nyeri County’s Tetu District.

In 2000 these famers spun off from the Giant Tetu Coffee Farmers Society, and now, membership numbers 1,542. And these are active members, in part because funds set aside from the previous year’s harvest are used to provide pre-financing for school fees, access to farm inputs and funds for emergency needs.
