Welcome to our new website, powered by Shopify.com ! We're still in the process of getting all the content online, so please bear with us.
Since our first major production run in October, we have been trying to cope with massive demand for our new product. It seems everyone we talk to wants to buy one, and retailers are lining up to carry the StashBelt in shops across Canada and in Kenya.
The big attraction of the 5th generation StashBelts is the integrated USB. All StashBelts now have a pocket designed to carry a water and shock resistant micro USB StashDrive, a new innovation bringing moneybelts into line with the needs of 21st century adventurers.
The next big thing for StashBelt is our fundraising/pre-order campaign on Kickstarter.com. We're aiming to raise $20,000: enough capital to propel our venture into the stratosphere. With this cash we'll train additional Kenyan staff, upgrade our Nairobi workshop and make enough belts to meet the exploding demand.
StashBelt is a Kenyan-Canadian partnership, leveraging the skills of both to the benefit of all. We believe official development aid has failed in its attempt to improve the lives of ordinary Africans, and that business provides a sustainable path to improved livelihoods in Africa. Ten per cent of all profits will be plowed back into African business ventures, paying forward the generosity of our buyers.
Follow @Stashbelt on Twitter, and get to know our team through photos from the workshop.
Stay tuned for more, and help create sustainable jobs for Kenyans.
