I attended the AWE training when my business was not formally registered. I registered my business during the AWE program and took everything I learnt in the program and applied it to my business during the time of the program and even afterwards. This year my business was acknowledged for its growth by the Ministry of Women’s Affairs, Community, Small and Medium Enterprises Development. We were also given an award as MSME of the Year 2022 by the Zimbabwe National Chamber of Commerce. I’m so grateful for the AWE program.

The impact i got was knowledge in terms of how to manage my own finances. I got to learn how to know what goes on with each transaction that i would do and what methods i could use to keep track. It empowered me with a bit of the art of public speaking and making connections amongst my colleagues during our program.

In 2021, l had the opportunity to take part in the Academy of Women Entrepreneurs (AWE), a women’s entrepreneurship program for 10 weeks. Starting my business had a lot of challenges, I had no financial or managerial background and running my business was extremely difficult. I quickly realized that there is much more to business than passion after I started the AWE program. With AWE I learned how to market my business; how to grow, and how to reach out to customers and suppliers. It was a truly invaluable, once-in-a-lifetime experience.   Using the skills l learned in the program, we scaled up our business and added new product lines. In addition to Events management, we now make scented candles and diffusers.
