Blacksmithing with a Strategic Business Mind

GRASSROOTS PARTNER: Ndongo United Herbalists Association (NUHA)

As participants in FCDE’s Small Business Initiative (SBI), staff of Ndongo United Herbalists Association (NUHA) became certified coaches trained by Street Business School to deliver business development workshops in their community.

Along with practical skills, participating in SBI has given Sarah a valuable new perspective. “Business training helped to get me out of my comfort zone and inspired me to reflect on blacksmithing with a strategic business mind. I am now so proud of my business! Unlike before, I can now save 5,000 Shillings per week [about $1.20 USD]. After realizing some profits, I can afford to buy scholastic materials and pay school fees for my children and also buy a meal for my family!”
