The Tuzamurane cooperative of organic pineapple growers, located in the Eastern Province of Rwanda, processes and exports organic-certified dried pineapple to European markets. It began working with Oxfam in 2010, five years after being established. In 2015 the cooperative became one of four enterprises supported by the Oxfam’s Enterprise Development Programme (EDP) in Rwanda. The core objectives of EDP are to build sustainable agricultural enterprises, provide them with grants and loans, improve the lives of smallholder farmers, support women’s empowerment, seek wider systemic change and involve supporters in governance of the programme, through an investment committee and board. This Effectiveness Review evaluates the impact of EDP’s support to Tuzamurane on household income of cooperative members and suppliers (collectively known as ‘contractors’). A quasi-experimental impact evaluation design was used to understand the impact that can be attributed to EDP’s support between 2016 and 2019. Find out more by reading the full report now.
