Beads Paper or Clay

Brief overview

The production of this product is very popular in places like Uganda and Kenya among NGO workers. These paper beads are very simple to make and are inexpensive. The clay beads would take more skill and resources, but could result in an amazing business like Kizuri Beads in Kenya. Again, the key to success of this business is the marketing of the products. If you can find access to an export market, that would be half of the battle. Some people are looking for sustainable local business models; the key to success would be a local market to sell your products. In our experience, some cultures do not give value to recycled products like paper bead. Market research is a key to success.
