the bakery project has been running for nearly a month now. i have two girls helping and already can do everything without my supervision which is a real encouragement. weekly we are selling about 300 sweet buns, a number that sounds a lot but is actually quite little. i would love to increase our production to maybe 600-800 in a week. this is what the strength of our bakery will be about for now . when we are established enough we will start venturing into other items such as cakes and savoury breads. we are in real need of a gas stove, at the moment we are using my moms electric stove and to be honest i dread to see what the electricity bill will be like at the end of the month. hopefully we will be able to contribute some money towards paying for the bill.i believe a gas stove would be great because we can still bake bread when we have power cuts (which happen often) and it wont be as expensive as an electric stove.
from the looks of things i think for the first 4 months(maybe more i am not sure) the bakery we will be making enough profit to pay the two ladies involved and contributing to the the electric bill. in other words it will be just enough to keep the business afloat. but i am not discouraged thats how everything starts. oneday God willing we will be supporting the school financially.
please pray about us getting a gas stove, if you would like to help us buy one please send a word;)
