Green House develops small- and medium-scale agriculture production in eastern Congo to increase the economic capacity of small-scale farmers and lower the price of processed food by creating locally produced goods.
Green House is currently training farmers to properly ferment cacao beans for sale to high quality chocolate companies. The quality of cacao beans in Congo is high, but the beans often lose their quality because they are not fermented in good conditions and many farmers do not know correct techniques.
By training farmers, Green House increases the quality of their cacao beans so that they can sell to buyers at a higher price, giving them the opportunity to make more money and expand their cacao farms.
