Since 2008 Mama Biashara has been setting the poorest and most marginalised of women up in small, sustainable businesses across Kenya. This means a woman who has been forced into commercial sex work can leave the streets and make a new, independant life with her children, a woman who is being beaten by her husband can leave and be safe and secure, girls kept as sex slaves can escape to a decent, independant life. Business is money and money is power. And having power is a totally new experience for these women.  The businesses grow exponentially because a businesswoman never returns her grant to MAma B. Instead she herself brings other women in the same position as her, into her business as it expands. We call it The Pebble in the Pool effect. And our pool is widening and deepening every minute.
