Nomenti Gas Supplies has grown in leaps and bounds since its establishment.
Owner Mavis Nowowo Nongogo says they grew from having 30 gas cylinders to buying 3000 cylinders weekly.
She provides gas to people in her community, making it more accessible as well as educating them on using LPG in a safe way.
Nongogo provides an exclusive service to the pensioners in her areas where she delivers the gas to them directly.
We decided to deliver the gas to them in order to protect them from skollies in our community. When they see them carrying a cylinder they just know they have money.— Mavis Nowowo Nongogo, Owner
Speaking to CapeTalk's Kieno Kammies, Nongogo says she left her job at Tiger Brands to start her own business. she was later joined by her husband who worked at a garage and had some knowledge about LPG's.
The first few years were a bit difficult, she says. They operated from a container which was deemed unsafe by the fire department and threatened to close them down.
They eventually managed to buy another container and expanded the business. Today they have their own premises were all their cylinders are kept safe.
