Description

Geta Bore Cooperative is a member of the Kata Muduga Union—a group of the leading coffee cooperatives in the West of Ethiopia, mainly centered around Agaro. One of the newest members of the union, it’s also one of the smallest—with, as of 2022, only 75 members. Sitting 8km south of the well-known Biftu Gudina cooperative, members of the Geta Bore cooperative used to deliver their cherry to Biftu Gudina or other nearby washing stations but decided to form their own cooperative to reduce the difficulty and cost of transporting fresh cherry as well as to have a stronger role in the cooperative governance structure. Now, Geta Bore farmers can now more easily access training services from Kata Muduga, and through the Union’s model they receive both a cash payment upon cherry delivery plus a 2nd payment after coffee export.
