Halving poverty in Africa is one of the key millenium goals, but few African countries will meet their goals by 2015.  World Hope International, a non-profit Christian development organization, decided to take an innovative and strategic approach by establishing an exporting zone in Sierra Leone.

Richard Schroeder, CEO of First Step which is a for-profit subsidiary of World Hope, joins us to share how the venture benefits the country, development efforts, private sector, and even the poorest communities in Sierra Leone while making a profit.
