She is a woman taking Nairobi, Kenya by storm! She is grass-roots organizer, micro-economy entrepreneur and social activist. Muthoni leads the Twendelee Women’s Group; more than a dozen women designing and making handcrafted women’s purses and jewelry in Nairobi, Kenya.
Most of the women live in the second largest slum of Nairobi – Kawangare. Each day can be a struggle for access to clean, safe water, electricity and basic needs.
During several visits to Nairobi I had the pleasure of meeting Jane. Inspired by her determination to uplift her community we embarked on a marketing partnership to bring the Twendelee Purses to the US. Thus far sales of more than $1500 US has translated into roughly 152-thousand Kenyan Schillings; funds that are helping to change lives.

Until next time~
