Fair Trade

Persabelle grew up in Ethiopia, which is famous for its outstanding coffee. When she discovered that a policy prohibits the best java from being poured there, she got to work.

“If I don’t change my country, who will?” is the question that drives her. Empowered by her MBA research and a local partnership, Persabelle’s making sure businesses get to the source of their coffee.
