Project for Rural Income Through Exports - Coffee, IFAD Impact Assessment Surveys, 2018
Agricultural Survey [ag/oth]
The Project for Rural Income Through Exports (PRICE) in Rwanda is a rural agricultural commercialization project that aimed to achieve sustainable increased returns to farmers from increased participation in export-driven value chains. This goal was to be accomplished by increasing production volumes and quality of cash crops, including coffee and horticulture, through a variety of interventions. The PRICE interventions included providing technical training on coffee processing, and providing support to horticulture farmers to develop business plans and access financial capital, both loans and matching grants, for their respective enterprises.
PRICE consisted of five components, namely coffee development, tea development, silk development (sericulture), horticulture, and financial services. The information provided here, refers to the Impact Assessment of Coffee cash crop.

The IA survey on coffee covered 2,894 smallholder coffee farmers in Rwanda, of which 1450 belonged to coffee cooperatives that received support under PRICE. In addition, a secondary panel data set of 85 coffee cooperatives, observed on a yearly basis from 2012 to 2017, was incorporated into the analysis.
Prior to collecting the household level data, we conducted power calculations that indicated a required sample size of 2800 coffee farmers, equally divided between the treatment and control groups for both TAP1 and TAP2. Our final sample size was 2894 coffee farmers who were members of cooperatives included in the panel data obtained from RCA and NAEB. This final sample includes 728 and 714 coffee farmers representing the treatment groups for TAP1 and TAP2, respectively. The control group includes 1438 farmers representing the control group for both rounds of TAP. Within each cooperative, members were randomly selected proportional to cooperative size. Members not sampled in each cooperative were randomly listed as replacements, in the case that the sampled farmers proved inaccessible
