Meet The Founder of Tchitchinga!
My name is Kafui Nadia Klussey Born in Togo, (West Africa), with a Business Administration background. I worked for more than a decade in Marketing and Sales.
In 2007 while employed as Marketing Agent in Togo, My employer was solicited by Women Entrepreneurs Network, for a sponsorship of a Fair Trade featuring their products. I was assigned to assist them, and it was a huge success. That opportunity gave Me an insight of the women struggles with their business in term of Marketing. I decided to step in and from then to volunteer, advising them in how to promote their products. Then later, came the idea to regroup women in an Organization that will educate, promote, and develop them. The project of Economic Development for Women Entrepreneurs got me to be selected as a “Humphrey Fellow” in 2009, to represent Togo in United State, through a Grant from US State Department. I decided to focus on empowering Women producers of Spices, organized in cooperative in Eastern part of Togo. I immigrated to Toronto Canada in 2011 to pursue my dreams of securing better opportunities for my beloved Farmers.
As it got challenging to find buyers for the Spices, I had the idea to add value to them by transforming them into blends. In 2017, I created a company: Tchitchinga Inc, with the objective to promote an African Inspired Blends and marinades, “Tchitchinga Blends” in North America. We practice Fare trade to increase the revenue and improve the life of African brave Women Farmers.
