Uniting farmers in Côte d’Ivoire

UCOVISA, Côte d’Ivoire29 July | 2013

Union des Coopératives du Vivrier des Savannes (UCOVISA) is an agricultural union that brings together 17,000 corn and cashew producers from 12 cooperatives in the northern region of Côte d’Ivoire. The cooperative members are located across three of the region’s most impoverished departments, Korhogo, Ferkessédougou and Tengrela.

UCOVISA is primarily focused on uniting small scale farmers to secure quality products, whilst gaining access to viable regional and national buyers and a fair price.

UCOVISA is a first-time partner of Oikocredit, receiving a credit line of XOF 139,000,000 (€ 212,000) in 2013 to increase its commercial undertakings and ensure the profitability of its current activities.
