Usongwe Agricultural Marketing Cooperative Society (AMCOS) was registered with the Tanzanian cooperative act in 1993, but the group's originators go further back to when all coffee groups were organized under state-regulated unions. The groups name comes from the nearby Usongwe valley which is inhabited by smallholder farmers and tiny villages. To date, AMCOS has grown to represent 520 smallholder farmers from the county of  Iwindi in rural Mbeya.
