  • Helped increase by 60% the attendance of girls in schools, that generally skipped because of lack of pads and even where pads are donated there are no panties;
  • Unlike ordinary pants, the pad-pant does not require washing or re-use, being an enormous advantage for all economic contexts;
  • Has 8 full time employees and different wholesales and supply chains that have created other job places;
  • Expanded to Uganda and soon Tanzania and Ethiopia.
