The good: We far exceeded our sales goal, and average income per agent, despite it being the beginning of the year, with a number of new trainings bringing on new sales agents who are still finding their feet. We’ve also been gearing up for this year’s expansion, scouting out new locations throughout the month, and getting our pipeline of new branches neatly lined up. Watch this space!
The challenge: As we look to the year ahead, and our plans to increase sales of cookstoves to almost double 2016, we are hoping that subsequent months will see a drastic rise in the number of clean-energy products sold. We are exploring new partnerships to increase our commercial presence, and hope that these will come into force next month.
