Rwanda is a remarkable country due to its fast development during the last years. Most of its development is based on the agricultural activities. In 2016, this economic activity represented 33% of the GDP, the 70% of the employment in Rwanda and 75% of the land mass is used for agriculture (Cafe imports europe, 2018).

As a part of the National Agricultural Strategy, the Government of Rwanda has decided to focus the human, financial and technical resources on specifics value chains in order to strengthen the agricultural products. In that way, the government pretends to increase the gross domestic product, attract foreign investment, increase the exports, and so, contribute to increase the well-being indicators and quality of life, specially to the farmers, who are the most important link but also the most vulnerable in the value chains.
