FARM STORY: Nyampinga, which translates to "beautiful women, both inside and out", is a women's coffee cooperative in the Nyaruguru district of Southern Rwanda. The women of Nyampinga receive training in agronomy, market access, and quality control from Sustainable Growers. One driver of better agronomic practices is through a program called Premium Sharing Rewards, which rewards farmers with points for attending tradings and implementing the learnings on their farms. With these points, farmers can purchase from a catalog of options, like pruning shears, cell phones, and solar lights, that they have collectively chosen. The program was developed ion a respectful way to encourage further training and technical assistance, and implement those skills to produce better crops.
