Background:

The COOPAC cooperative was founded in 2001 with only 110 members, but has grown to represent more than 8,000 smallholder families in Rwanda, operating 50 washing stations. The cooperative has a particular emphasis on using organic methods for farming and in intentionally conserving and protecting its environment. Additionally, the cooperative offers social services for the well-being of its members.

The Kirorero washing station serves about 2012 smallholder producers in the areas of Boneza and Musasa, about 800 of whom are women farmers. The growers are organized into two first-tier cooperatives: KOTWIBAKABO and COPROCUCAMU.
