Story

Meaning “together we can” in the Kirundi language, Turihamwe Turashobora is a small investor group started by seven women coffee producers in the Ngozi region of Burundi in 2019. For many years, these seven entrepreneurs worked in coffee farming and earned premiums from producer and exporter group JNP Coffee as part of the International Women’s Coffee Alliance (IWCA) Premium Program. Over time, the Turihamwe Turashobora group gathered their funds and built their own wet mill to process their coffees. For these seven women, and thousands like them, earning premiums for specialty coffee provides financial stability so that they may support themselves, their families, and reinvest in their communities. With the help of JNP Coffee, the IWCA, and Burundi Friends International, these coffee producers are able to participate in classes that teach financial literacy, leadership skills, and English. Such resources help these producers to develop and grow their coffee production, improve their homes and farms, pay for children's education, build savings, and invest their money overall. Through their continued success, the members of Turihamwe hope to increase their coffee production to over 1,200 bags annually within the next few years. We’re proud to support the Turihamwe Turashobora members who are a part of the growing movement to empower female coffee producers in Burundi and beyond. We’re eager to share the remarkable efforts of these seven producers and exhibit the superior quality of their coffee. Enjoy!
