Incentivizing Farmer Investments for Sustainable Growth in Rwanda’s Coffee Sector

Coffee production has been at the core of farm family livelihoods in Rwanda for many generations. Today it remains a primary source of cash income for over 355,000 households across the country (NAEB 2016b). Since 2001, the coffee value chain has enjoyed a renaissance and has emerged as the darling of specialty coffee markets and consumers around the globe. The processing side of the sector has thrived with the construction of 245 privately and cooperatively funded washing stations in every coffee growing region of the country. Dry mills and export companies, both domestic and international, have likewise opened for business. There has been tremendous value added in the industry’s transformation.
