The Vunga Cooperative began in 2009 and is located in Nyabihu district in the Western Region of Rwanda. Vunga includes 260 total members, 186 of which are men and 74 are women from the surrounding areas between 1,650 and 2,000masl. This coffee is fermented for 6 hours and dried on 25 raised African beds for 35 days. Muraho works directly with small coffee producers across five washing stations in Rwanda and are dedicated to improving farming practices and quality for the producer's livelihoods and for their customers. Last season through our FFS program (Farmer Field Schools), Muraho developed a nursery for 110,000 seedlings (Kilimbi – 50,000 and Rugali 60,000) and distributed them successfully to their family of Farmers in Nyamasheke. This program helps them train and educate small coffee producers in better agricultural practices in order for them to gain better yields from their trees. Muraho is the first company in Rwanda to get official legal approval from the governing board NAEB to produce and export Honey and Natural processed coffees.
