Meet one of our talented growers
‘I’d love to be young again, to have more energy and to be receiving the benefits I’m earning now. Nobody offered me any training in the past. With all the training I’ve received through the co-operative, I could have been a different man!’
Ahimed lives in the Harar region of eastern Ethiopia, and is very typical of the small-scale farmers that Trade Aid supports.
Selling his coffee to Trade Aid through the Oromia Coffee Farmers Co-operative Union has brought Ahimed two key benefits; better prices, and training in improved production methods.
Now, at age 60, Ahimed is receiving prices nearing 100 birr per kilogram for high-quality Harrar coffee, which is acknowledged as some of the world’s best.
For the first time in his life, he has finally started earning enough money for his coffee that he can begin to save.
He plans to use these savings to support his children through higher education.
