Ricky, Young Agriculture Entrepreneur in Timor-Leste
Currently Ricky’s Coffee estate has permanent workers, they are 6 (six) Timorese youth, ages average 25 to 30 years old. During the coffee harvest season, he employs part-time workers from his village to pick the coffee beans. “It’s hard for us to find part time workers during harvest season because most of them are working for their own,” explained Ricky.
After collecting the beans from the area then the next process is to transport all the beans to the sorting and roasting place before it goes to packaging process.
