    Investing in Mama Noume's business

    Day 235

    More to Work With

    One of the ways Mama Noume impresses us most is her business of selling sustainable sanitary pads. Today, we’ll be working to make her business take off even more. Her idea? A supplies refresh.

    Mama Noume teaches sewing using the materials for the pads. They’re are a great way for the girls to learn – not to mention a source of income once they’re finished.

    With the expansion of the house and new sewing machines, Mama Noume can take in more students – but she won’t have more supplies.

    Because we’re in the business of solving problems and not creating them, we wanted to help out with more materials!

    When the new students come, they won’t put a stress on the existing supplies this mama has been able to collect.

    More materials means more pads and more pads equal more income! This is the kind of trend we like to see.
