Women “make up around 43 percent of the agricultural labor force in developing countries”. They are especially disadvantaged and usually have more limited access to both information and services. They hold more responsibilities around the house and are now taking over more and more of the agricultural workload as men migrate out of town to find work. My guest today on Be Your Change is Vava Angwenyi, founder of the social enterprise Vava coffee. Vava was born and raised in Kenya. In 2009, she decided to become part of the solution and founded the social enterprise Vava Coffee. Vava saw smiles where others only saw poverty, corruption, and fears. She noticed the voices of coffee farmers and their needs to be heard. Vava focuses on helping women gain confidence and financial independence in Kenya.
