I love this project because it taught me a lot about hygiene and washing hands. It helps bring affordable soap to my community.

Helen
Helen has been selling soap since 2010 and one of POHK’s original sellers. She is a true entrepreneur, balancing her soap business, a hair salon, and raising three children. It is not uncommon to see Helen walking around Kibera, selling soap door-to-door, with her baby on her back.
The soap I sell is so nice. My clients use it for washing hands, for washing clothes and for washing dishes. It makes the job at home easy.

 Loreto

Loreto is a mother of four young children, including a new baby born in 2014. Her enthusiasm and eagerness to learn has taken her far and she is truly dedicated to POHK and her business. Just weeks after her baby was born, she was selling soap out of her home.

The soap business can make the lives of people to change. It makes me to have my own money so I can feed my babies.

I am a single mom so selling soap helps me make money to feed my baby.
