“How I Started my Drinking Water Business with 2 Million Shillings” -26 year-old Ruth Mawia


Have you ever thought of starting a water bottling company? Do you know how to go about it? Or would you like to know more about how young female entrepreneurs go about starting their own businesses and manage to stay afloat? Then learn more from Ruth Mawia Mwanzia who started her own water bottling company –largely driven by her passion to see to it that all people are able to consume clean drinking water. This, having grown up in Kitui County -a semi-arid area where water is a scarce commodity and even when available, she says most people consume unclean water.

In this interview, the 26 year-old entrepreneur talks about the challenges she has faced; penetrating into the market and having to compete with large, established brands, among others. Ruth also talks about her marketing strategies -which have seen her Koola Waters brand now stocked in most supermarkets and shops.

Ruth works with a team of employees and has great expansion plans for her business.

Be inspired by Ruth’s entrepreneurship journey.
