What inspired Giligilani?

Ms. Elsie Atieno Onyango,  the founder of Giligilani says that the idea to start  was sparked by her passion for food and cooking that incorporated the use of fresh herbs which have very rich flavors that are crucial in transforming a meal.

“Unfortunately, fresh herbs in Kenya are either very rare or difficult to find in the local market. And in the case that you find them, they are very expensive and of poor quality. The high demand for fresh herbs in the culinary industry in Kenya motivated me to meet this need by providing a consistent supply of a variety of superior quality fresh culinary herbs”

Having discovered this need, venturing into agribusiness was her obvious natural option.

“Agribusiness entrepreneurship was a new venture for me and I desperately needed training and coaching”

The opportunity to receive this training presented itself at the WECREATE KENYA Center; an entrepreneurial community for women interested in starting or expanding an existing business. “This was a huge blessing on my end” She admits.
