Hi Kickfurther community! After launching our business in 2014, we have seen an increased demand for our products. The Kisii soapstone products, African Baskets and Drums, among many have been selling like crazy! We have not been able to keep up with the demand due to the fact that all our product are handmade in Ghana and Kenya. We believe that this year is the perfect time to look for help from the Kickfurther community to get this done.
Right now, the cost per unit of our products are high due to shipping costs. We have partnered with an importer based in the US to help us leverage that cost. With the help of the Kickfurther community, we will be able to import a larger quantity, which will lower the unit cost of our products which will result in lower cost for our customers, increased inventory and ability to pay back all our backers on a timely manner.
During the last 2 months, we have sold more than 300 mini Handcrafted soapstones and we are on record of selling more than 2,000 pieces by the end of year. We have also received inquiries and requests for the large Djembe drums. Besides our website, we also have our products sold on facebook, twitter and pinterest. Our total sales goal for 2016 is $100,000 and we need the help of the Kickfurther community to achieve this.
