A single mother of two makes ends meet by producing and selling Rosella wine (alcoholic) and Rosella juice. Her story starts back in 2010 when she attended food processing training with SIDO under the Business Development Gateway project with the motivation of upping her skill set so she could earn a better living than her Mama Ntilie job afforded her.
Having thought through her options she decided she would go into wine processing lured by the potential lucrative margins to be had . Starting she produced wine from SIDO facilities but later purchased her own equipment to produce from her own facility.
Faika wine is relatively a small business, current production levels stand at 80 liters of wine per day and 40 liters of juice,it remains to be seen if the market for specialist Rosella wine is one of scale to turn into a sustainable business.
