Product type: Female Urinary Device
Archit Agarwal and Harry Sehrawat, were the classmates, jointly doing the project on making the report of public washrooms in Delhi, astonished by the bad conditions of the public washrooms, understanding the pains of women, they were motivated enough to solve the problem, they got the idea of toilet cleansing machine, which was a capital-intensive solution, so to figure out the solution, which was scalable and sustainable, they got the idea of stand and pee devices.
The idea behind the product:
The founders of Sanfe realized that Urinary Tract Infections and lack of affordable female sanitation facilities are issues that are marked with social stigma and are not likely to take a centre stage in recent future. This realization gradually dawned upon them through countless rounds of casual conversation with their female acquaintances. It was then that Archit decided to not wait for the menace to silently grow and fester. Thus, Sanfe was conceived.
