Pink Pepper Essential Oil- Sourcing Pink Pepper in Kenya

Veronica lost her husband in a road accident in 2014. To provide for her five small children, she started making ropes from the fibers of plants. Initially, she would make about 200 shillings a day, but over time local shops stopped buying from her. Veronica made friends with another young widowed mother, Lucy. As they contemplated how they would make ends meet and provide for their young families, they met Mr. Kigo. A man who changed their lives. He told them to leave their jobs and to work for him instead; harvesting pink pepper. Veronica was a natural! Since she started harvesting pink pepper, Veronica has been able to make 1500 shillings a day compared to the meager 200-300 she was earning previously.

Veronica and Lucy are just two examples of the hundreds and thousands of lives that are and will be impacted by the harvest of Pink Pepper. That’s why doTERRA does co-impact sourcing. It is all about the individual and how we can make their lives better.
