Project Description

The main activity of the project is supplying electricity from the exisitng micro-hydro power plant to the community and to the Coffee Processing Center during the daytime. The electricity will be used to process the harvested coffee berries from the established coffee plantation into dried coffee beans. Since the existing processing facilities are old and under corrosion condition, the project would procure new facilities,beside constructing new processing building, and building a storage house for dried coffee beans. All the facilities will be managed by the existing Rimba Lestari cooperative. Other project activities would be to conduct survey in order to construct the I/O Table for the hamlet so that its economic structure can be obtained and future direction of development then can be recommended.
