Jomvu, Changamwe - Mombasa County
Jackline Andanya is one of our beneficiaries on Baking and Briquettes production. During an interview with KTN News at her home in Jomvu where she bakes, she explained how she has been able to save on fuel by using the briquettes which are affordable and easy to produce. In addition, the smokeless Briquettes have improved the quality of her cakes as they are always smoke free. Her income has since then increased and she is able to meet her family's day to day needs.
Jackline has also trained a number of mothers within her neighborhood on the briquettes production who are also earning an income from them. We have always encouraged our beneficiaries to spread the knowledge to other mothers around them, and we are so proud of their work.
