As Mukurima Muriuki says, “as long as you have the willpower and then you get the opportunity, then you can always make your dreams come true.”

Farming is a noble profession, but unfortunately, many farmers who grow the coffee that we so much enjoy do not get fairly compensated. As Mukurima contends, this is really shameful in our society that the people who are feeding us are not getting enough simply because they don’t have enough power and opportunity in our society.
