Capcoo (Community farm ) - a cooperative founded in Garga in 2021 after multiple training sessions. This cooperative has 110 members: 30 refugee women, 30 Gbaya women, 30 Gbaya men and 20 refugee men. It should be noted that these women constitute the first wave of women to be trained in the transformation of cassava into tapioka. And they continue to make tapioka that they regularly exhibit at the trade fair organized by international organizations in Bertoua. This cooperative, through the transformation of cassava into tapioka, won the prize for the best transformation unit in terms of quality in the municipality of Ngoura. This group produces an average of 100 kg of tapioka per month because of the contract that was signed between the cooperative and a company called KIMOFOOD based in Bertoua.
