Articles on coffee boost Kilimanjaro farmers’ income

Stanley Lyamuya, a beneficiary of TMF on individual grants based in Moshi, Kilimanjaro Region, is highly respected senior journalist. He has studied the impact of the global financial crisis on the coffee market and asked why Tanzania relies too heavily on world market instead of its own market.

Focusing on a public interest story that aimed at increasing local consumption of coffee in the country, Lyamuya based his argument on the assumption that Tanzanians’ consumption of local coffee was estimated to a paltry two per cent while Ethiopians consumed 45 per cent of their local coffee.
