Success Story: The Business Side of Private Healthcare

The Business Side of Private Healthcare

Our client is a donor-funded private healthcare sector support project. Its mandate is to strengthen the capacity of private hospitals, clinics, maternity homes and pharmacies to deliver improved reproductive health services in six Nigerian states.

In 2007, the project discovered that, though its technical support was delivering improvements in the clinical aspects of healthcare, it was not enough to achieve stability and growth in these health facilities. They found that the facilities also required support in the areas of business management and access to finance.

Success Story: New Lease of Life for a Stone Quarry

A Stone Quarry Gets a New Lease of Life

Our client established a stone quarry in 2010 to take advantage of the looming supply gap of stones in the building and constructions sector. The quarry was strategically situated in Akamkpa, Cross River State to take advantage of the ample granite reserves in the area.

For a quarry to operate efficiently and profitably it must have, at the very minimum, a fully functional crushing plant, adequate blasting and earth moving equipment and a suitable fleet of logistics vehicles.
