Please provide examples of any previous entrepreneurial initiatives you have pioneered.
My sister and I have developed with our NGO programs combatting child trafficking, offering microcredit for the creation of income generating activities (palm oil, soaps, snacks, etc...), as well as for organic farming. With this association, we have also worked to increase access to clean water, build schools and health facilities in Benin.
Beyond your existing team, who else are you working with to achieve your objectives, eg partners, advisors, mentors?
We are working with the Chamber of Commerce of Lausanne, Humanité Plus in Benin, some local people in Kibili, Guinea, who know very well the region and can analyse where are the needs and who also think about solutions that can be brought.
We also met a lot of people who settled up new social companies as ours and who gave us precious advices about how to proceed.
We are probably going to work with a local company which create new technologies in the agronomical sector and which is ready to help us to build the new machine we need for the cold extracting method.
