Farmers reported the issue of coffee theft whereby unknown people harvest premature coffee in their coffee gardens.

Lack of Materials (Tarpaulin) needed to dry Coffee.

Most farmers in Mpenja Mpogo do not have enough materials to dry coffee, this is evidenced by using worn out tarpaulin with holes and sacks. This has led to reduction in quantity and quality of coffee.
