Effie: Junes Jewellery

Nairobi, Kenya

I sell African jewelry at the Masai market and also hawking in kibera and its environs. I started the business to support my son and I didn't have any other way. My biggest challenge is capital for expansion. I desire to set up shop in a stall in town because there are many customers thus good for business. My customers are mainly ladies.
