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. Geta Bore is one of the smallest coops of the Union (barely over 50 members as of 2021) and is a relatively new member to the Union. It sits about 8km to the south of the well known Biftu Gudina Cooperative and represents the Union’s expansion to areas farther from the Agaro base. Geta Bore farmers formerly delivered their cherry to Biftu Gudina or other nearby stations, but decided to form their own group to limit the difficulty and cost of transporting fresh cherry and to play a stronger role in the cooperative governing structure. 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.
