Bahati is an entrepreneur and a mother to five children. Some time ago, she and her husband, Tembo, lost their firstborn daughter to an illness. "I had six children, and unfortunately I lost one of them. It was a fever... I laid her down to bed, then after some time the condition changed, and she passed away." Bahati hopes that the business she is building with Tembo will provide security and a good future for their family for years to come.
Why she was selected for the program: Bahati runs her business side-by-side with her husband, Tembo. Since they began selling stoves in 2015, they've grown their business in bold, new ways, even developing a line of stoves made from bicycle parts. Bahati and Tembo are fearless entrepreneurs, and they're excited to receive training to help them along the way.
Her business goal: Bahati hopes to learn better business management strategies as well as new ways to produce stoves. "I'm eager to learn new technologies."
