Describe the growth of the Business since receiving assistance from the #EmpoweringHER campaign.
“All of the equipment and tools helped prepare for the Intra-Africa Trade Fair and Kenya Exhibition. It also helped with day-to-day business needs and I stopped struggling with internet access. I have seen benefits as now, when there is a large sum of orders, production is quick. We now “qualify” to mass produce and be small enterprise suppliers to Clicks, Shoprite and Mr Price. We can now have 5 – 7 students as opposed to 3 – 5 students in each class.”

“Thank you very much to the Hollywood Foundation Team, I cannot express the amount of gratitude I have, but I can only do it through my hard work because of the team believing in me.”
