Management Jojoba plantation
I am responsible for the Jojoba oil production of our biggest Jojoba plantation. Together with Ester, I introduced our facial oil and face cream to clients in Zurich Switzerland. To get to know the people that will finally use our product is very important to me.
I coordinated the women involved in this project. They come not only from different backgrounds and tribes, but also from different areas all over Namibia. As I speak six different Namibian languages, it is my privilege to act as the connecting link between us.
I am the manager of the Sivara wild-harvesting area. I live in a village close to the Okavango River in Northern Namibia. Me and my team harvest Mongongo nuts and Kalahari melon seed according to organic standards.
I am responsible for the storage and quality control of the Mongongo and Kalahari melon seed. It makes me very proud, that one of the key ingredients in our facial cream comes from our Village.
I am the manager of Etomba village, one of our educational harvesting centers. At Etomba me and my team harvest Marula seed for our cosmetic products.
Jojoba oil and salt production
Me and my husband Johnny are responsible for one of our most remote Jojoba plantations. Another task is to harvest the salt, which is an important ingredient of our facial cream, deep in the desert. We travel a lot, as it is our job to transport the seed, etc.
Management oil production
Me and my team are responsible to press and filter the different seeds into high-quality oil. At our production facility in the Namib Desert, we work according to European quality standards. Furthermore, I manage, together with Johnny, our greenhouse where we grow our Jojoba cuttings.
