Meet Dieudonne Kwame Agudah, the founder of WASHKing, a social enterprise working to supply bio-digester toilets to low-income urban households in Ghana with the aim of ending open defecation and at the same time focussing on giving employment to young people while equipping them with transferable skills.
In the interview Dieudonne speaks about:
- What a bio-digester toilet is and how it works
- How Dieudonne and his team manage to make toilets affordable through demand aggregation and linking customers to subsidy programs and financing options
- And how an entrepreneurship program that he enrolled in helped him make his idea real and actually get his first customer.
He also speaks openly on why his family did not welcome his decision to become an entrepreneur and why he is still happy he made the leap.
There is a lot of good stuff in this interview with Dieudonne and we hope you enjoy the conversation as much as we did.
