Rosalie earns a living selling women’s health products in Rwanda, on behalf of Kasha, to women living under the poverty line, in a culturally sensitive way. She delivers access to feminine sanitation products and contraceptives to her peers in discrete packaging and at secure locations because, for women in East Africa, having their period is taboo. Beyond Capital invested in Kasha in October of this year and we are honored to be a supporter of another company that is elevating the stories and standing of women. Rosalie is just one example of the impact Beyond Capital's investments are having.
