Recovery After Conflict
In 2005, the Dukundekawa coffee cooperative, also known as Musasa, became Root Capital's first client in Africa. Since its founding, Musasa has grown from 300 to more than 1,800 members—among them many women who were made widows by the 1994 genocide. In this video, Musasa cooperative members recall the genocide and describe how the cooperative helped them rebuild their community. They also explain the importance of Root Capital financing to Musasa.
