_0005_Musa Social Venture
MUSA is a social enterprise that aims to dismantle the inequalities caused by menstrual poverty and the stigmatization of the menstrual cycle, with a focus on Sub-Saharan Africa. In this region, one in ten girls is absent from school when menstruating and hundreds of thousands of menstruators are discriminated against and removed from social, work and cultural places due to their natural physiology. MUSA sanitary napkins represent an economically, socially and ecologically sustainable solution to this problem. 100% compostable, accessible, and in line with Western quality standards, they are produced with banana fiber obtained from crop waste (largely present in the target countries) in mini-factories delocalized to rural communities. This approach is circular, guarantees autonomy and promotes sustainable development. In parallel, MUSA conducts training workshops on hygiene and menstrual health for the entire community.
