Mary Maina is a baker who lives Wangige, Kenya, a rural marketplace roughly 10 miles northwest of Nairobi. Back in 2014, she was a mother of three struggling to manage a tiny business all by herself. Armed with just a charcoal oven and a wooden spoon, Mary only had time to mix 2kg of flour a day before then having to bake her goods and get them delivered to her customers all by herself.
