Story of the Business:
Falilat makes soap and detergent that can be used to wash plates, clothes and any dirty surface; her products are designed for use in households, hospitals, and even offices. Falilat has established partnerships with many local hospitals and offices, supplying them with soap and detergent on a regular basis. Rising demand among communities has also helped Falilat expand her distribution to individuals seeking quality soaps and detergents. Falilat is a hardworking mother of two. She studied chemistry at her local university, where she placed special focus on the chemistry of soaps and detergents. Driven by her newfound knowledge, she decided to open up her own soap production business. For the last three years of business, Falilat has been widely successful, allowing her to provide her children with a strong education.
Passionate about her work, Falilat strives to provide the best service to her clients with quality controlled products and prompt delivery. Although many members of the community rely on her services on a day to day basis, Falilat never disappoints. In addition to providing much needed soaps and detergents, Falilat seeks to improve the lives of others; she currently employs four members of her local community and seeks to help even more.
