KOKOWAGAYO is the first all-women’s cooperative in Sumatra. While women carry key roles in coffee production, they are traditionally excluded from economic decision making. A group of bold women formed this all-women’s cooperative to give economic power to female coffee growers. KOKOWAGAYO strives to increase the role and capacity of women in coffee farm and financial management. This group of business-oriented women are paving the way for redefining gender norms in Sumatra.
With their Café Femenino premiums, they built a community center above their wet mill to allow for a safe space for women to congregate and learn new skills. Kokowagayo is conducting leadership and business training to improve, in their words, the skills and courage they need to be successful in entrepreneurship, financial management, and high-quality coffee production.
Permata Gayo supports its sister cooperative KOKOWAGAYO with training and export services, guaranteeing consistent and exceptional quality. While the concept of an all-women’s cooperative in the region is innovative in the primarily Muslim Ache region, it is a natural progression as girls receive equal education and women business leaders become increasingly prevalent.
