SPRY is a group project I (Vimvipa Poome) worked with Yuri Ohara, Saadia Zahid and Rasha AlShihabi for International Environment for Business class.

The project applied analytical tools including STEEP and Multilevel Analysis to identify an opportunity within Rwanda in order to create a Triple Bottom Line Business Design Solution. The STEEP analysis provides insight into opportunities that tackle the coffee industry specifically within the transport of coffee cherries to Coffee Washing Stations and utilizes the development of a design to empower women within this context.

Although Rwanda is enjoying consistent economic growth, it is evident there is still room for opportunity and innovation. After identifying one opportunity to create an enabling tool for women, and designing a Triple Bottom Line business solution, it would be important to take this research and solution to the next level, for example, finding low-cost raw material suppliers preferably Rwandan as well as local manufacturers to cut down on the production cost.

Giving women in developing nations enabling tools is always a more successful venture to lift them out of poverty, as opposed to providing the tools to men. Since the opportunity is identified within women and agriculture, a solution should definitely be presented. One that starts with women, but is also utilized by farmers and men, eventually providing an option for a sector that will make use of the support.
