She adds that the New KPCU also needs to streamline marketing and payment of coffee to restore the trust farmers had on coffee as a source of income, and check on loans advanced to farmers and come up with strategies to waive them and revamp the sub sector which has been doing poorly over years.

The Women Rep. was speaking when coffee farmers in Murang’a were their views during a public participation session on the coffee cherry revolving fund which the government has set aside in the current financial year.

She lauded the government for coming up with the funds which will help farmers at grassroots.
