"Back in September, I visited Emelianne Nyiramana in Kigali, Rwanda. Emelianne is the founder and treasurer of the Cocoki cooperative, a partner of design-driven nonprofit, Indego Africa. Five years ago Emelienne didn’t speak a word of English and made less than $2 a day. Now, having worked as a partner with Indego since late 2007, the members Cocoki and Emelienne make well over $7 a day and have a robust, busy, and growing business."
