What would you do if you had a dream to start a coffee company and your mother literally kicked you out of the house for it? That was the decision facing Vava Angwenyi, founder and CEO of Vava Coffee. Vava Coffee is a Kenya-based coffee company on a mission to help Kenyan coffee farmers. While traditional coffee farmers in Kenya earn less than one dollar per day, Vava knew she could change that and increase the income of the farmers. But when she set out to start her company, not only did she face resistance from her family, but also from Kenyan culture at large. In this episode of World-Changing Women, we’ll hear how Vava surmounted those initial obstacles, how she has found the courage to keep going despite struggling to find funding, and how she’s transforming an industry from the inside out.
