Description

Kedemai Cooperative (established 2018) is located 25km from Agaro town, and organized under the umbrella of the Kata Muduga Farmers Cooperative Union. Loans from the Cooperative Bank of Oromia and Kata Muduga allowed the 180 founding members of Kedemai to construct a washing station and purchase equipment. Within 2 years the cooperative was able to repay loans in full. Through the Kata Muduga system, 90% of the FOB price goes directly to the cooperative. Farmers (coop members) are paid cash upon delivery of cherry (avg 15 birr/kg in 2019), plus end of season bonus (1.5 birr/kg in 2019), plus member dividends based on coop-wide profit after operations/expenses. Kedemai and Kata Muduga have also donated funds to local school construction.
