Development begins by picking up a hoe.
Without working these fields,
we will never move forward.
What has made you the happiest in this life?
Being taught by my father how to farm. It is what has sustained me.
Who is your role model in life?
My grandfather. When he left this earth he passed on something to his children. I hope I am able to do the same.
What do you hope for your children?
I hope that they have a good future in agriculture. None of them have had much education. I believe that development begins by picking up a hoe. Without working these fields, we will never move forward.
Have you ever tasted your coffee?
Yes, it’s delicious and sweet!
Charles has been farming coffee since the 1970’s and has 480 trees. Since our washing station opened four coffee seasons ago, he’s been walking from nearby Gaharo hill to deliver his coffee cherries to us.
