Getachew Zeleke, the founder of Dimtu Tero Farm, has set an ambitious goal for himself. He wants to become the leader in quality, traceability, and sustainability in the Guji zone. And he is convinced that this will be achieved by Guji’s work-force, the coffee smallholders of Odo Shakiso.
Getachew focuses on supply chain integration of stakeholders. Simply put, he works together with smallholders that have the vision to grow a thriving and sustainable coffee community near the villages of Tero, Jelewo Anona, Mancity, and Hangadi. They become equal partners.
The smallholders receive premiums on top of the regular cherry price, interest-free loans, improved coffee seedlings, processing equipment, and training – in productivity, quality, and sustainability.
