Reviving Rwanda's Economy

This report, written by the left-wing Associated Press, is from the Michigan section of the current Detroit Free Press.

An agricultural professor from Michigna State University is leading an effort between the university and Rwandan farmers to band together in cooperatives. Many of the farmers being widows from the genocide of the Nineties, these efforts to bring life to the nation's poor economy through cooperative efforts is encouraging.

At the moment, world coffee prices are high enough for coffee growing in this poor country to be fruitful. However, it would be better for the farmer co-ops to also diversify into other cash crops, so as to not be dependent on one crop for their livelihood.
