"> T he Koperasi Pedagang Kopi Ketiara is a women-run cooperative that has over 890 grower-members who cultivate
coffee on more than 830 hectares of land. The Ketiara Cooperative
was started in 2008 by Ibu Rahmah, the current chairwoman,
who had operated and managed her family’s coffee business for
20 years-purchasing cherries, processing the green, and selling
to local traders. The passionate commitment of the women
managers to have all members working together in support of
coffee production has enabled Ketiara to expand and become an
important supplier to larger coffee traders in Medan, the capital
of North Sumatra. The cooperative members voted to become
organic and Fairtrade certified in 2012, making a commitment to
use these proceeds to create programs for health, education, and
public infrastructure projects that will benefit all co-op members.
