Story of the Business:
Zarah learnt how to make local fragances from her Elder brotehr’s wife 3 years ago. She wanted to learn a skill that could bring in some income for her so she wouldn’t have to depend on people or solely on her husband. This led her to learn hwo to make local fragances. Looking back now, she is glad she learnt the skill, as she has been able to bring additional income to the family and also take care of some of her basic needs. Zarah has been married fro 10 years now, and has 4 children. The oldest of her kids is 9 years old and the youngest 4 years old. She is happy because from her income she can support her children’s academics too. She looks forward to the futrue and the opportnities and growth her business would get from working with Leadership Initiatives.
Zarah hopes to be able employee more young ladies and teach tehm too how to make the local fragances, giving them an opportuntiy at financial independence like she had.
