A little bit about Mama Foncha:
EVERYONE in Bamenda, Cameroon and the surrounding areas knows who Mama is, and she loves EVERYONE. Even when her husband was the Prime Minister, Mama says she never wanted her children to live in some big palace without learning to do things on their own, so she and her husband bought some land on the top of a hill in Bamenda, Cameroon, built a house and started to farm. Mama has always loved to farm! She’s a go-getter with a serious commitment to making things better for anyone who needs it. Mama insisted on going to high school back when girls didn’t go to school… she found a school in a completely different town who would finally accept her and walked there every day. Now, she’s helped found a girls school in the same town, and more girls in Bamenda go to high school than boys!
After the re-unification of Cameroon, many coffee farmers started having difficulty making good money off of their coffee because of corruption in the system and chose to stop growing coffee. Entire coffee plantations fell to ruin, and Mama Foncha and her family noticed that something should be done about it. Mama had started growing coffee of her own, in her back yard, and wanted to show other farmers that they could sell it productively. But she needed more coffee to have enough to sell at first. So she got together with Bobe Ngam, and Cameroon Boyo Coffee was born!
