The Sorwathe Tea Plantation and processing facility in Rwanda was built in 1978 by one of the first U.S. investors in Rwanda, and rebuilt almost two decades later with the support of OPIC political risk insurance. Today, the facility purchases tea leaves from thousands of small farmers around the country, generating an important source of income for the local population.
