Congo - Boza
In 2013, Marcelline Budza, inspired by her mother's resilience, established Rebuild Women's Hope along the shores of the coffee-producing region of Lake Kivu, Congo. The cooperative provides stability and opportunity to the producers of the region through micro-loans, health care, and incentive programs. The majority of producers in this region are women, and the cooperative believes that "building the hope of women is building the hope of an entire nation."
