SUSAMATI

Susamati is a social business that aims to bring inovative solutions on sanitation on Mozambique

Pitch

The idea comes as a result of the Biologocal Urban Sanitation Project (BUSP), which was financed by Via Water and ended in December 2018.
Our busines brought to the market ”Pia Fantastica”, a toilet seat that besides being colorful and being the cheapest sanitation solution in the market, uses only one glass of water for each flush. We are currently testing the use of Black Soldier fly larvae that inoculated in the pit, can consume the fecal sludge reducing the need for emptying. In addition to Pia Fantastica and the BSF larvae we have been promoting environmental awareness campaigns in neighborhoods about sanitation, hygiene and environmental health. We are also implementing a training program for young entrepreneurs who are learning more about the themes already mentioned but focusing on marketing and entrepreneurship so that they become autonomous promoters of our products. we are now operating only in Maputo but we are planing to expand to other provinces
