Ubwiza bw’ikawa literally means “the beauty of Coffee” but the implied meaning is “Benefits of Coffee”. The process of privatization of the coffee sector in Burundi occurred when coffee growers were organized in associations under the big national organization known as National Confederacy of the Associations of coffee growers ‘CNAC-Murima w’Isangi’. As these associations cannot compete with the private investors, they made the decision to transform their associations into cooperatives which can fill at the same time the social and economic mission. This is the way UBWIZABW’IKAWA Cooperative was born in 2009 with main activity of collecting the production (cherries) of the members to be forwarded in the existing coffee washing station of the state to avoid cases of theft during weighing and payment that farmers were compromised with and at the same time to realize some gains of this activity.
