Kibingo washing station participates in a number of farmer outreach and support projects including a goat and pig project, Farmer Hub, strengthening cooperatives and distributing fertilizer and coffee trees.
Despite the ubiquity of coffee growing in Burundi, each smallholder produces a relatively small harvest. The average smallholder has approximately 250 trees, normally in their backyards. Each tree yields an average of 1.5 kilos of cherry so the average producer sells about 200-300 kilos of cherry annually.
