MCE-A Cooperatives

Our cooperatives are serviced through 5 regional Centres. In the graphic, Cafe is Tetun for coffee and Hare is Tetun for Rice. The numbers are numbers of  recorded members (1151 member households  from 38 coops), but there are many more members  known locally. Based on 50 coops we estimate MCE-A has 1,514 member households with about 6,200 adults and children. 21% of member households are headed by women. We’d be delighted to hold a census and keep it updated, but our limited funds are prioritized elsewhere to directly benefit the farmers, so we go with “fit for purpose” and try to improve data collection as we can.
