Be sure to also check out RENEW’s Annual Impact Report, “A Journey of Impact”, which gives an overview of the impact of our entire portfolio, as well as a deep dive into one company, Desta PLC, a garments manufacturing facility. This edition explores various aspects of the impact of the company from the perspective of several stakeholders. Everyone’s story is different, but each individual plays a key role in the growth and impact of this company that is a leader in the fast-growing textile industry in Ethiopia.
