Sugar Cane Cooperative Development
01/20 - 10/20
This project is part of
The project concerns the business advisory services support to Sugar Canes Cooperatives and Water Management Organizations operating in areas which follow: Mwogo Mageragere and Ntarama. For SUFACOMWO (66 members) and SUFACO NTARAMA (472 members with 8 500 tons per each year); the business scenario is that Kabuye Sugar Works Factory collects the produce directly from farmers and pays them directly through their bank accounts. Currently cooperative receives 500 Rwf from the factory for each ton supplied by its members at the end of the year through cooperativersquo;s bank account. The factory is also involved in providing inputs to the farmers. For SUFACOMA (219 members with 9 581 tons collected each year) the system of payment is the same like the previous ones a difference is that the cooperative owns a truck for transport and the members are supplying their produce on time. For these three cooperatives support is needed on the short run to in improve governance record keeping and establish financial statements. The remaining 6 SUFACOs need some more time to mature but they can receive the trainings second half of 2018. For WAMOS a training in Financial management is recommended.
