Accounting senior, Josephine Lando, was excited to get an internship with Coca-Cola in Summer 2013.

What turned out to be a career building experience also resulted in a "how to" handbook for female entrepreneurs in Africa and an opportunity to put the Xavier and Williams College of Business missions into action.

Her internship took place in Kenya.  The Small Business Handbook she created was for the Coca-Cola 5by20 initiative, the goal of which is to empower 5 million women by 2020.

Coca-Cola funded the production of the book.
