Who we are
Coopératives des Caféiculteurs de Kalehe (CCKA) is an agricultural cooperative founded on 10th September 2009 by the small coffee farmers of Kalehe after finding that the culture of the coffee was their main source of income activity that was abandoned following multiple wars in Congo that led to serious consequences for people’s lives.
The main objective is to improve the conditions of socio-economic lives through the production, processing and marketing of quality coffee sought by major international buyers.
Currently, CCKA has 1881 members of which 85% are small farmers who are vulnerable among which include widows, orphans and young people.
