Reneville Water is life; water for All
Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development
Knowing that people are free from diseases such as buruli ulcer and have access to clean quality water is the greatest achievement for me. It has been a great experience so far and I have never regretted venturing in this project. The satisfaction of seeing my customers being able to purchase quality water and the feedback I get from them is enough to keep me in this project. Also when it comes to those who have found some source of employment, I'm very glad to be able to play a role in their lives since this business is very lucrative and they make a 100% profit which they keep. Currently the only means of evaluating my success has to do with satisfaction and referrals. Other means such as analysis and comparison with other water sachet products are soon to be used.
Sustainability and future plans
With concerns to business model, I am a distributor. Financing this project has been from me solely, that is, money used is from my savings. I do look forward to enlarging this project by opening other depot in other neighbourhoods who also face challenges as my neighbourhood.
Your profile as an entrepreneur
I was born on the 30th of June, 1988 therefore I will be 28 years soon. I am a very versatile person which has landed me in jobs such as radio presenting, being a personal assistant, an exercise science consultant, a customer service advisor, just to mention a few. My main motivation to start this project was due to the expensive nature of being able to purchase drinking water as well as the scare of the buruli ulcer disease. I am a people's person and aside welcoming praises, I also do welcome advice and criticism and I believe this has brought this far in life. When I started this business in December 2015, I purchased only 300 bags as a retailer due to financial constraints. But two months down the line, I was able to sell over 1800 bags which got me to be registered under the company as their water depot in my neighbourhood which automatically made me a distributor in March 2016.
