Sholi was formed in 2008 by a group of 30 women farmers as a way to invigorate their local economy. Located halfway between the Rwandan capital of Kigali and Lake Kivu to the west, Sholi members grow coffee up to 2000 meters above sea level, cultivating traditional Bourbon varietals, and delivering their cherry to nearby collection points throughout the small district of Muhanga. This particular lot was grown by the Sholi Women’s Association, a group of female farmers who organized to share resources, skills, and to advocate for their rights within their communities.
