We are Healthy Entrepreneurs

Why are there still over 2 billion people worldwide who do not have access to basic essential healthcare? Healthy Entrepreneurs is a social enterprise, founded in 2011, with the aim to systematically solve this situation. HE deploys a last-mile distribution model to deliver affordable and reliable health products and services to the poorest families living in rural areas. Through a network of trained micro-entrepreneurs,  we manage a fully integrated end-to-end supply chain of reliable products and ensures customers are provided with practical health information. For that matter, isolated villages are transforming into strong, well-informed communities. Currently we are servicing over 2 million people with our businesses and HE is continuously growing.
