Essmart is bridging the gap in the global supply chain for life-improving technologies. We connect a catalogue of products, such as affordable solar lanterns and non-electric water filters, to village-level mom-and-pop retail shops so that villagers can learn about, access, and benefit from these goods.

What is according to you the key to your professional success? 

DianaJackieCartier-EtienneJeanneret

The key to our professional success is our team. We’re two American women living and working in south India, so we’ve come to rely on our team to execute our vision. Our team members, from our Indian managers to our Sales Executives who deliver the goods on the ground, are energetic, creative, and committed to our vision as much as we are. By building a family that works harmoniously, Essmart is able to succeed and create real social impact in the lives of people who can now access and use the life-improving technologies that we distribute.

How would you like your business to grow?

DianaJackieCartier-EtienneJeanneret

We would like Essmart to expand across south India, then the rest of the nation, and then globally to other countries. Our model is able to expand because it grows through mom-and-pop retail stores, which are present in every emerging economy. To date, we’ve moved 6,500 life-improving technologies through over 510 stores in six different regions of south India.

Quelques mots pour présenter votre entreprise ?

DianaJackieCartier-EtienneJeanneretEssmart comble le fossé qui existe dans la chaîne d’approvisionnement mondiale de produits innovants. Nous proposons un catalogue de produits tels que des lanternes solaires abordables et des filtres à eau non-électriques, à des mamans commerçantes et aux magasins des villages. Le but étant que les villageois puissent avoir accès à ces marchandises.

Quelle est, selon vous, la clé de votre réussite professionnelle ?

DianaJackieCartier-EtienneJeanneretElle tient au professionnalisme de notre équipe. Il ne faut pas oublier que nous sommes deux Américaines qui vivent et travaillent dans le sud de l’Inde, et que toutes seules, on aurait eu beaucoup de mal à réussir. Nus avons donc dû compter sur nos collaborateurs pour mener à bien notre projet. Tous les membres de notre équipe sont dynamiques, créatifs et engagés au même titre que nous. Grâce à ce groupe qui fonctionne harmonieusement, Essmart a réussi à créer un véritable lien social avec des populations qui peuvent désormais accéder aux produits innovants que nous distribuons.

Comment voyez-vous le développement de votre entreprise ?

DianaJackieCartier-EtienneJeanneretNous aimerions qu’Essmart s’étende sur toute l’Inde du sud, dans un premier temps, avant de s’implanter progressivement dans le reste du monde. En tout cas, notre modèle est appelé à se développer, car il repose sur un réseau de commerçantes et de magasins opérant en zone rurale, et que l’on retrouve dans toutes les économies émergentes. À ce jour, nous avons fait parvenir plus de 6500 produits innovants à travers plus de 510 magasins, dans six régions différentes du sud de l’Inde.
