Sanergy Agricultural Field Sales Representative Vacancy in Kenya
Sanergy is an award-winning social venture that builds healthy, prosperous communities by making hygienic sanitation accessible and affordable in Africa’s urban informal settlements.
Our systems-based approach to solving the sanitation crisis involves five key steps: we build a dense network of franchised micro-entrepreneurs, who operate low-cost, high-quality waterless sanitation facilities – called Fresh Life Toilets.
We provide critical support services – such as access to finance, business analytics, training, and marketing. We collect the waste regularly and safely remove it from the community. We convert the waste into valuable end products, such as organic fertilizer, insect-based animal feed, and renewable energy.
Finally, we sell the end products to Kenyan farms under the brand name Farm Star.
Farm Star helps African farmers prosper. We offer safe, high-quality, organic agricultural inputs, safely and sustainably derived from treated organic waste.
Our products help ensure food security, while improving farmer welfare. Farm Star-branded products promote sustainable agricultural practices throughout Africa. We manufacture and sell our products locally in Kenya. Farm Star is a brand of Sanergy.
