Access to Credit in Rwanda
In the aftermath of the 1994 genocide, devastated communities in Rwanda's coffee-growing regions struggled to rebuild. In 2005, the Dukundekawa coffee cooperative, also known as Musasa, became Root Capital's first client in Africa. Since its founding, the enterprise has grown from 300 to more than 1,800 members. As Musasa cooperative members explain in this video, a reliable source of credit is essential to their cooperative's growth.
