Rosa

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.

Ester

Project coordinator

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.

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.
