Story

In a remote region like North Kivu, the part of the Democratic Republic of Congo where our partners at SOPACDI grow coffee, emergency funds can give people flexibility and security. A premium from the price Equal Exchange pays the co-op for their crop goes directly to SOPACDI's women's group. The women recently established a grassroots savings-and-loan program. Members now have a way to cover unexpected rainy-day needs, like hospital bills. And they can access loans for forward-focused investments, like the establishment of new small businesses! The women named the loan program AVEC — the French word for "with", signifying group unity and the importance of working together.
