Rumukia Coffee Farmers Get Reprieve After County Mediates Sh163m Loan Deal


Rumukia coffee farmers have received a reprieve after the county government mediated a deal with Taifa sacco to restructure a Sh163 million loan.
The signing of the deal has given the farmers six years to pay back the loan and saved the coffee society’s assets from the auction block after they defaulted on payments.
Speaking during the signing of the deal, Governor Mutahi Kahiga asked the Rumukia Society management committee to focus on increasing coffee production and winning back the confidence of the farmers.
“The county will provide extension services to the coffee farmers to increase production and quality,” Mutahi said.
