By definition, the cottage industry is a small-scale, decentralised manufacturing business often operated out of a home rather than a purpose-built facility.
We admire the works and initiatives of Mary Ngechu, a woman in manufacturing, a social entrepreneur, passionate about changing lives through providing avenues for earning a decent livelihood. She said in her article, “ Development of cottage and tiny industries are equally important as the development of small, medium and large industries as they generate more rural employment. The promotion of these industries leads to an improvement in social and economic conditions; and an overall balance of rural and urban industrial activities, which in turn, retards migration of labour from rural to urban areas.” – The Role of Cottage Industries in Kenya’s Industrial Growth.
We may be a young online retail business but we do have big dreams.
