The biology ofthe sea and its ever changing microcliments and pockets of extreme condition places just the right amount of stress over many generations that creates the changes and numerous unique offerings of the sea. There is so much to be learned from the seas. We just can be afraid to look below the surface

Did you know that 83% of Mavuno’s staff lives and works in Congo? It’s true – we have 30 team members in Beni, Congo! In an effort to provide more visibility for our Congolese staff and make their voices heard, we’re going to start doing employee spotlight interviews so our followers can get to know our team a little better.
This week’s spotlight is Merdi Baraka, Mavuno’s market analyst and all-around go-getter. When he’s not out making sales for Mavuno’s enterprise initiatives, he’s putting his analytical skills to work to develop Mavuno’s operational strategies. Don’t take our word for it, here’s Merdi in his own words - link in bio.
P.S. - Be sure to check out the posters we had made because of an awesome and insightful phrase he mentioned during this interview.
