STORY: In 2003, a farmer named Joachim Munganga restored a washing facility in the remote Lake Kivu region in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Joachim’s restoration efforts inspired the founding of the SOPACDI cooperative which has since grown to more than 5,000 active members, many of whom are women.
The SOPACDI was the first cooperative to achieve Fair Trade and Organic certifications in Congo and members of the organization represent several distinct ethnic groups.
