In this region of the world where coffee and cocoa can be a stable source of income for families, we partner with small-plot farmers and their cooperatives to help them improve production and quality and gain greater bargaining power with buyers. And we develop cutting-edge tools, like smartphone apps, so farmers get the information they need to grow and sell their crops.
