Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development

We make eco bricks from brick-waste construction material and eco tiles from plastic materials. The available machines are able to produce 5000 bricks / tiles per day or on order but we plan to buy a multi purpose brick/block making machine for ease of use and faster production. We have provided site renovations and proper water waste management solutions for over 117 homes in the past 4 months through various community outreaches. We expect to hit 300 homes by end of 2022. We have recruited over 20 graduates on the team and there is need to build a skilling center for better output and productivity.

Sustainability and future plans

Each eco brick/tile comes at $0.8-$1 based on the size. We make profits from sales, hired professional services, transport deliveries, the building wallet for savings, and ongoing transactions that amount to about $408k per year. We have received grants and equity free investments worth $150k from various collaborators and competitions. We currently need to raise $350k to buy multi purpose brick/block making machinery, 2 trucks for the eco-brick factory and pay for labour costs. This will increase our production rate by 25% and improve on our brand visibility.

Your profile as an entrepreneur

My Name is Ephrance Eunice Namugenyi Founder and Managing Director Kuzimba Services. I am a female entrepreneur born on 03/12/1988 in Uganda. I am a Lecturer at the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering Kyambogo University and my issue has always been having to teach students in building and engineering school, get them skilled and then graduated only to have them jobless. The Building and construction sector is a competitive male dominated space and so standing out as female leader has taken focus, consistency and resilience. As a result we have won 4 major excellent awards; 2 from HiPipo foundation, 40 days 40 fintechs landscape exhibition and even emerged winners of the 2021 Women in Fintech Hackathon Competition that happens every year in Uganda.

First this is an interesting name Dr Gbogbo. You want to read about the person. Well am glad to hear about your testimony and how you have been helped and you want others to be helped as well across Africa. It is great to know there is lots of people out there that want to help and see others in good health and succeed. Thank you for sharing this great testimony would love to share this as well with other people based on your evidence.

November 20, 2022 01:46

Hello everyone my name is Brenda Clark from Germany. I am on this platform to share my testimony on how Dr Gbogbo helped me shrink my fibroid naturally and gave me some herbal medicines which I use to cure my 6 years of infertility. I have been trying to get pregnant for the past 6 years before I finally met Dr Gbogbo. I had tried several medicines provided by my doctor which all didn't work out and couldn't shrink or get me pregnant. At first when my colleague introduced Dr Gbogbo to me I had a skeptical opinion about African herbal medicines but I had no option than to give it a trial which I did and I got a possible result at the end. I only use it for 2 weeks as directed by Dr Gbogbo. I am a proud mother of twins, This is to every woman suffering from fibroids, pcos and infertility or any health challenge that you're yet to find a solution to. Please meet Dr Gbogbo, He has one of the best herbal medicines from Africa. Thank you all for reading.

Kuzimba is one way to reduce on some stories from some hardware shops .
One reduces on excuses such as of the prices going up, traffic jam, counterfeit products when one chooses such an excellent brand to purchase their material.

This Kuzimba Services team has a offered a new dimension to saving and building in Kampala. With the passion and determination of change the building sector. She is a hands on woman and has innovative approaches to projects. I've worked with her on my own house project and I was amazed by how much money was saved during the project because of her interventions. But also, how clean she left the site having put to use most of the construction site waste into finishing materials for the peripheral works.

It is really nice to see a company like Kuzimba tackling some of the construction-related issues facing middle and lower income communities in the Urban/Rural area of Uganda. I hope with the approach Kuzimba is offering of « sustainable modern housing solutions » in such communities will help minimize or even stop poor housing that leads to many other issues (as discussed in the video). I wish you success in all your endeavors Kuzimba team.

A great idea that not only reduces wastage of construction materials through reclaiming the unused pieces but also coming up with a product that has good strength through the combination of the different percentages of materials

Dear Ruth thank you for the comment. Looking at the SDGs sustainability is key especially in building the foundation of any starting business. It is a long term aspect and is key. We have had to think of eco friendly products like the eco tiles and eco bricks. Not only to make money but also think of the impact.

Kuzimba is definitely one of a kind as it deals with one of the things that greatly affect the environment and the people at large which is waste management preferably from construction materials.

Kuzimba is also accessible and affordable in such a way that services can be ordered from the comfort of my home and also the services can be accessed by every one and thus minimizing accidents due to falling debris at construction sites.

Bridget Tembo

October 1, 2022 13:12

Kuzimba is definitely one of a kind as it looks at one of the things that greatly affect the environment and the people at large which is waste management preferably from construction materials. So two birds are hit with one stone as the natural resources are consumed but not depleted as well as the environment conserved. Kuzimba also provides affordable services as consumers will get quality products but still within their means minimizing on issues such as accidents at construction sites due to poor and not durable materials.

We are lacking such creative, objective and visionary minds when it comes to construction in most of the countries in Africa. I strongly believe that what we are being offered by Kuzimba services is that perspective we haven't been having as a nation.
All the best Kuzimba.

I am excited about Kuzimba Services. Because this world has pretty much become a global village and we are living in the 4th Industrial revolution, I am excited about the fact that there are people, especially women who are leveraging technology to make access to goods and services easier.

I am especially happy about the fact that Kuzimba Services guarantees that your products will reach you safely and will be of the standard quality you ordered. I love that it has a team of not qualified and highly skilled people but these are people whose lives are marked by integrity and the desire to mentor and help upskill the youth in the community.

We need more entrepreneurs like this in the country, the region, and the entire continent who are providing practical solutions to unemployment and now...housing. I can't wait to watch this organization expand and inspire a whole new generation of young entrepreneurs.

Sidra Khan

September 24, 2022 18:24

A great job by Kuzimba Services to come-up with a digital platform to access quality and affordable construction materials.

Asiku Roy Alia

September 24, 2022 10:24

Wow, good work. For the sake of our environment, such ideas are needed to pick up the slack from poor urban management and waste disposal. I think you should also invest more time in the root cause of the issues you are trying to solve: Government policy and its implementation.

rebecca mirembe

September 24, 2022 10:13

Am all in for Kuzimba services this patriotic venture and inspiration of our own benevolent leaders is the way to go i am inspired way to go Epphy and Team.
This gives most Ugandans the opportunity to obtain affordable healthy housing, owning a home of choice is what Kuzimba offers the average Ugandan and thats a big deal especially to middle income earners who work majorly for housing and retiring with no place to call a home of their own ,this is a Godly chance to help and empower many lives , by our own with the desired home.

Kuzimba services is a great building solution to majority of us, even the low income earners. I love the e-wallet that lets us save up money in small chunks with a sole purpose of future building and construction projects. This gives me strong hope that each of us shall own a home very soon. Bravo Kuzimba !

Joseph Olinga Gideon

September 17, 2022 02:52

Kuzimba Services! This is a great opportunity for the current entrepreneur which Am glad to cease. It has given me a hedge to build both business and family premises in the future at a depreciated rate unlike savings and housing insurance at appreciated rates.
Visiting various offers I appreciate the services and wish you all the best dear fellow entrepreneurs.

September 15, 2022 13:58

For this idea, I would give it as many votes as possible, because i have seen her really manage the construction space even though its a male dominated space.. To greater heights and successes. Good luck!!1
