CAN $48 START A BUSINESS?

Can $48 start a business? An entrepreneur in Kenya did! Growing up in rural Kenya, a young lady developed interest in food science through observing her mother. The traditional food preparation skills she acquired  opened doors for her.

While still in school she did an experiment, by making food spices from vegetables. The experiment was successful and she made some money from the sales of the grounded mixture which she sold to her schoolmates. Her business idea was motivated by a desire to encourage healthy eating through the use of non-artificial food seasonings.

After her degree, Anzazi partnered with two friends and with a capital of £48, after acquiring the standardisation, Taste Afrique Co. Ltd. took off. Though a professional accountant, she has been able to effectively combine managing a small business, inspite of the challenges, with her day job.

The business is growing and she, along with the business partners, are looking forward to investing more capital into the business, mechanising some aspects of the production process and moving into external markets.
