“Winning the funding assisted us in getting recognition for our brands . The training we got from the BEP was very impactful because we understood our business better. With the BEP fund, we were able to purchase equipment that expended our production by tenfold."

"I was absolutely new in business when I won the prize. The BEP helped me organize myself, formalize my business and it is safe to say they initiated me in this journey. Our very first machinery came from the funding and it was great to stop cooking from my small kitchen."
