What we should know about you
Questions answered by Leire Diez Larrea, Manager
1. Imagine yourself/yourselves 5 years ago in comparison to the situation you are in today. Which achievements surprise you the most?
Achievements are that a part of these trained drillers and entrepreneurs in the past 10 years have drilled over 4,000 wells and produced/installed over 12,000 rope pumps. A part of these wells and pumps are subsidized but over 60% of the pumps are now paid by families.
2. What drives you personally to keep your social business running?
The reason I do this is to help to increase access to water and sanitation but at the same time make sure that the entrepreneurs that are trained make a profit so they will go on after training.
3. What recommendation would you give to someone who thinks about starting a social enterprise?
A recommendation for a social enterprise would be to be market based. Talk to your clients! Make sure you know what they want and what they want to pay for.
