This Seeds grant provided the Muungano Cooperative with funding to produce and distribute 50,000 coffee plants and 10,000 erosion-controlling trees to over 500 of its members. In South Kivu, many coffee farmers tend trees that are more than 60 years old, which are less productive and less profitable than younger trees. The project supports both the economic and environmental sustainability of producers in a region historically lacking in development funding.
