By Bakah Derick 

The North West Cooperative Association (NWCA) has received close 40 students interested in the production and processing of coffee. The final year students from National Cooperative College Bamenda visited NWCA's Mile 3 Nkwen Head Quarters on Thursday 16 February as part of an academic field trip.

On hand to receive the students was the Administrator of NWCA. While reaffirming his institution's commitment to respect the partnership that unites them with the National Cooperative College, Mathew Ngangwa presented an overview of NWCA, the different structures from society to the apex organization NWCA. He outlined the governance structure of the association explaining the role of the executive organs before leading the students in a guided tour of NWCA. Mathew Ngangwa also used the moment to encourage the students to take genuine interest in the production of coffee like their many of their grand parents and parents did. 
The students went through the finance, control, marketing, plant unit and stores services where they received sufficient information on their functioning from the different service heads.
