With a $30000 working capital injection from Stanbic Foundation, Simon Musyoka, founder, SunSweet, is able to source, produce, package and distribute unsweetened, unsulfured dried mangoes in Kenya. Armed with increased funding, he has acquired 3 additional dryers and a higher pressure jiko which has increased production by 60% and led to the employment of 12 additional casual workers during the peak mango season, majority of whom are women and youth. Initially producing and distributing mango flakes only, SunSweet now boasts of mango jams, mango lip balm and mango juice as part of its portfolio. Recording increased uptake and business momentum, Simon asserts that SunSweet is now well equipped to further broaden its products with a goal to manufacture premium mango soap and mango powder in the near future.
