Waku produces and sells horchata lojana, an ancient Andean herbal beverage that promotes a healthy gut. The Latino-owned business sources its herbal ingredients from small-scale indigenous farmers in Ecuador at fair prices and has pursued organic certification for many of its ingredients. After producing and bottling its products in Ecuador, Waku distributes them in New England stores and direct to customers through its website. In 2021, BII provided Waku with a line of credit to even out cash flow as the company grows.
