The Dalecho cooperative is part of the Kata Maduga Union. Agaro cooperatives have historically delivered coffee to OCFCU (Oromia Coffee Farmers' Cooperative Union), the biggest coffee union in Ethiopia. The union functions as a service-provider for coops in the main areas of marketing (i.e. finding buyers), harvest assistance (e.g. agronomic), finance (i.e. helping coops to obtain loans from local banks), and providing documentation services (i.e. assisting in navigating the often labyrinthine bureaucratic system of obtaining the correct documents so that coffee can be sold and exported). The Kata Mudaga Union was established on August 2016 by 35 primary cooperatives and includes a total of 17,594 small-scale farmer members. Kata Mudaga is located within the regional state of Oromia, Jimma zone, and Agaro is its town closest. Agaro is located 397 km from Addis Ababa.
