One might not expect to find fresh locally made yogurt so close to the equator, but one young woman has made this her business.
In 2017, Nashipai started a yogurt business. She orders 40 L of milk from Arusha and each day she transfers the milk to buckets where she makes small containers of strawberry and vanilla yogurt and stores them in a fridge that she was able to buy with a business loan from TEMBO. Young and enthusiastic, Nashipai recalls that her business started by selling eggs, one tray at a time or even one egg at a times. Now she is happy that her yogurt business is growing and that she can support her young daughter.
