For decreasing the gap between Coffee Sector and financial agencies, Mocha Valley and Azal for Microfinance set a debate session between the financial agencies and coffee companies, agricultural associations and coffee shops) about how to link the coffee sector and financial companies. 

In this session, representatives discuss obstacles facing the coffee sector workers while looking for financing their projects, on the other hand, financial agencies also facing other obstacles finding suitable plans for the Coffee sector as it is a long term profit.

Outcomes are:

1- The importance of having the tailored program for financing the coffee sector as there is no such specialized program-related for the coffee sector in Yemen.

2- The financial contribution and intervention from financial agencies should be within the whole coffee value chain not only the agricultural chain.
