The success story of Lorna Rutto

Lorna Rutto is an entrepreneur and inspiring woman based in Nairobi. In 2010,she quit her job and started a waste recycling business.

Her company which is well known as Ecopost,collects and recycle waste plastic materials into aesthetic, durable and environmentally friendly fencing posts.

Her start up capital was from SEED AWARD who gave her Ksh600,000 .In 2010 she won a grant award from Enablis Energy Globe-Safaricom foundation which boosted the business in other way.

She has also won an award from the competition organized by the Catier womens initiative. Recently, her business has attracted Ksh49,500,000 as an equity investment from Blue Haven initiative.

Lorna has not only provided an alternative to timber as a fencing material, but also created jobs among youths.Her business has also created revenue to the government and saved a lot of land which would have been used to grow timber for fencing by a high percentage. I think lorna needs alot of appreciation.
