Sana Pads: Empowering Women Across Nigeria with Reusable Sanitary Pads

Problem: Over 60m women in Nigeria have limited to no access to clean and affordable sanitary products. They miss out up to 25% of days at school or at work and many use unhygienic alternatives leading to infections and diseases.

Solution: From African women for Africa women. Our products are designed and produced locally by women in Nigeria with the best available materials. We use organic bamboo fiber for high absorbency, long durability and easy washing. To accelerate our impact, we partner with international organisations to supply women who can’t afford our products and train people from all around Africa to bring our solution to their villages and towns.

Achievements: We were already able to successfully launch 2 products and secure EUR 20k Investment form German and Nigerian investors. Within our first 6 month, we were able to supply over 200 women with our sustainable products providing them with enough period products for at least 2 years.
