Khoelife Organic Soap and Oils Primary Co-operative
Promoting women entrepreneurship through marketing organic soap and cosmetics.
Khoelife Organic Soap and Oils Co-operative combines a franchise model with a microloans system. Members of the co-operative receive training and peer-to-peer support regarding management, finance and marketing in addition to receiving start-up capital. The purpose of the enterprise is to enable women entrepreneurs to set up independently-owned businesses.
As the first cohort begins to make headway, part of their commission and loan repayments will be used to support a new set of entrepreneurs, thus eliminating the need for external funds. The traditional, labourintensive production process relies completely on renewable energy sources, thus reducing carbon emissions.
Khoelife Organic Soap and Oils Co-operative aims to empower women and build a distribution network for the products of Khoelife Organic Soaps and Oils Manufacturing.
Khoelife Organic Soaps and Oils Manufacturing supports the cooperative with seed money, administrative support and stocks of certified certified organic products.
Impilo Yabantu, a successful co-operative in the sanitation sector, advises Khoelife Cooperative on setting up co-operative and distribution networks.
