Faith Orone is a graduate from Makerere University Business School (MUBS) who graduated with a Bachelor of Business Computing. While at campus, Faith was different from her fellow girls because of her inventiveness and this made her assist her parents and help them not be burdened with her upkeep.
When she was still at university, she used to sell ladies shoes, clothes, jewelry and oddi(kipoli) to her fellow students to earn income.
After graduation she decided not to sit at home and depend on her parent’s income as she was looking for a job she studied for. Later on she was employed but the payments were not good, according to her. She would use all the salary in a week due to the various expenditures on different items because as a lady she had a lot of things she wished to have.
As she was growing up she used to love baking and this pushed her to put the idea of baking into practice in order to supplement on her salary.
“When I graduated from campus I stayed home for a period of time without a job thinking of what I could do, I got a job last year but the money I was getting was not enough. I would get my salary and I spent it in one week. That’s when I decided to start a baking business using the little money I had, but since my childhood I have been a fun of baking.” Faith narrates.
When she started baking she decided to specialize in making cakes because of the high demand they were having and with time she started getting customers to buy her cakes starting with her friends, she named her hustle, Ketham Yummy Cakes.
“I don’t regret joining the baking industry because it gives me freedom and my customers always appreciate my product which gives me courage, I thank God for that. I make cakes for all types of parties like birthday, wedding, graduation patties among others at an affordable prices and there are also some discounts to my customers.” She added.
Some of the challenges she mentioned are untrusted friends and customers. “I remember the day when I gave a friend of mine clothes to sell and she disappeared with them which made me stop that business of selling clothes. In baking there are no serious challenges because my customers know what they want and usually make 50% payment on order but I thank everyone who has supported me because my life has changed with cakes am not the same person.” Faith concluded.
