Women entrepreneurs have come up with extraordinary innovations that are transforming millions of lives around the world. In this series of blogs, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) introduces you to some of the women whose ideas they have supported. These women are having an outsized impact in the developing world — and beyond — proving that when women do better, countries do better.
Third in the series is Sasha Kramer, who co-founded SOIL in Haiti. The organization develops social business models around ecological sanitation, a process in which nutrients from human waste return to the soil rather than polluting fresh water resources.
