These businesses started in Voi where ladies were being used by businessmen to sell sweets and biscuits on Voi main road. They would be paid about 70 pence per day. We gave them their own stock and 12 of them started up business. Business is growing and once every week they all contribute £1 which makes enough money to start another mama in business. So in the two months since they started there are another 8 mamas up and running.
UPDATE Sept 2015
We went to the Kitui Show and please watch this space for an update on the numbers of confectionary sellers we started and will start there.
