Powering Vision

Cynthia is a young social entrepreneur from Nigeria who joined MicroMentor to grow her biodegradable dish soap business, Everglow. Cyndy was connected with Gary, a former executive from UPS. Gary leveraged his extensive experience with sales, marketing and global logistics to help Cynthia, who then implemented a major rebrand and made crucial decisions about labeling, pricing, packaging and distribution. Gary helped Cyndy gain a competitive advantage within the burgeoning liquid soap market in Nigeria. Her business grew by 40% and hired 6 new employees. EverGlow is now being pursued by venture capitalists and bar soap manufacturers.

Cynthia is now launching a second social enterprise focused on cassava which will improve the environment and increase farmers' incomes. Read more...
