We started with 9 girls who were given a professional 5/6 week training paid for by Mama B and are now able to do anything – last year they made 9 wedding cakes and already they have many more on order foor December which is Wedding Month in Kenya. These original girls are now training others and, all in all, since last year they have grown from 9 to just over 80 and growing fast.
Since then Mama B has trained a furthe 140 girls in making cakes, muffins, pastries and in presentation. All businesses are still doing well and are reaping benefits from the increase in wedding contracts that Mama Biashara is getting.
