Goin to Nairobi
On Sunday, I’ll be travelling to Nairobi, Kenya with our Production Assistant, Edron. SERRV, a large fair trade importer from the U.S., is having a training for their East African producer groups, and invited us to attend as a potential future trading partner. The idea of the workshop is to build the capacity of SERRV’s current and future trading partners, so it’s an amazing opportunity for us. Also, if we are able to work with SERRV, our 380 artisans will have work for much more of the year, and our products will gain a large amount of market exposure in the U.S.
Plus, Mama Mpinzile made a connection in Ghana with a customer from Nairobi whose products we’ll be delivering as luggage. Plus, I get to hang out with Edron and see Nairobi! Woooohooooo!
