We believe in training. For the sphere of business, this is especially important. For the last few years, we have had some of the most dynamic business leaders and friends speak to the community about the basics of starting a business and more. Some of the topics they address are:
-Creating a small business
-Writing a business plan
-Biblical business guides
-How to sustain a business
These seminars have led to actual business creation and even the funding of some small businesses.
Haiti used to be well-known for its coffee. With tropical conditions, comparable to Kona's prime conditions, Haiti is a great place to get coffee. Our community boasts some of the greatest coffee roasters in the area, and with the mountains being so close to us as well, we are in a special area to help this business grow! Each person involved with this business is paid a fair wage and we keep as much of the production in Haiti as possible, and therefore most of the profits. Any additional proceeds go back toward Konbit Haiti's programs.

While helping to teach Haitians about being good stewards of the earth, we also help these small farmers create products with the superfood they grow. With our own farm and farming partners, we have helped to develop good business principles and on-the-ground training. Additionally, we sell this superfood powder here. All the proceeds go to our farmers and partners, as well as back to the mission itself.
