Social enterprise, Kusini Water, makes water treatment systems from nanotechnology and macadamia nuts. Murendeni Mafumo, the founder of Kusini Water, has faced many challenges. Besides the usual barriers to entry, he had to face the transition from being an engineer to an entrepreneur and leader of a growing team.
Since working with FURTHER, Murendeni has grown Kusini Water into a business that has not only scaled in growth and received significant impact investment, but its impact on communities around the country has been phenomenal. They produce millions of litres of clean water per month and have trained young people to become community water champions.
Thanks to the expertise of Murendeni Mafumo and his team at Kusini Water & Filters, 210 000 South Africans now have access to clean drinking water.
