My name is Ann Migwi born and raised up in Muranga county in the central region of Kenya.
However, I navigated life safely into adulthood after having covered primary and secondary school education. I then left home to join Daystar University in the Nairobi City where I pursued my degree
I graduated and later secured a job in contract bases. Since then, I have been doing baking services having been trained in this area while still doing my degree course.
I am in baking business where I make cakes for all occasions like weddings, birthdays, anniversaries etc. I also do confectioneries such as queen cakes and supply them to retail outlets. I do this on a very small scale since I do not have adequate capital to expand and market my products effectively.
I also use makeshift oven which is not only slow but its finished product is now what it would really be if I was using a modern oven. There is a huge potential for the business since I live in a densely populated area where I am assured of demand all the time.
I am currently making about $300 from the business but half of it goes into covering my overheads. I am currently running the business from home so as to cut the expenses.
In enhancing my knowledge and improving my skills,I have doing this through YouTube which flexible and easily accessible. I have been able to impact the community by training them on how to use YouTube as a mechanisms to get skills,which is more cheaper as compared to attending class which one may incur huge amount of money.
Since now I have increased sales and demand,I now wish to graduate working from the house and get myself a house from which to work. This may cost approximately $250 and will make my business accessible hence make more customers hence increased profit with margin of between $20-25 a month.
