SYLVIA’S RECORD-SETTING SOAP
During COVID, so many of you helped bring clean water to the Kicuzi region and our team taught several communities how to make soap. This led to soap co-operatives being formed and soap products being sold at local trading centres.
Sylvia and her friends formed one of these co-ops, pooling resources and learning business fundamentals to expand their growth. They got creative and made labels, then they reinvested that money to start producing new product lines like Acts Jelly - a skincare product made from aloe. In just 12 months, those who invested in the co-op saw their revenue grow 17.8 times!
“I continue thanking ACTS for training us how to make soap and jelly. You have opened our eyes for future development because now we are able to provide our homes with needs because we sell soap and jelly and get money, we use it on our bodies and now we are shining! God bless you good future plan you brought to us!” - Sylvia
