Hamid and Fawzia are a husband-and-wife team who take every brave step into entrepreneurialism together. They first came to Tree Shepherd in June 2013 when we delivered a course at Spires in Streatham.
They were referred by St Mungo’s Broadway as a family affected by the benefit cap and in real need of fast-track support. Through his family connections in Germany, Hamid imports fine loose teas from around the world and honey produced on the European continent. Fawzia is an artist who produces beautiful ceramics – both as artworks and as homeware – ideal for honeypots and cups to complement her husband’s products.
They have both benefitted from support at Tree Shepherd in the form of network events, regular business guidance sessions, introductions to local buyers and street markets, production of marketing materials and a table at the 40th Lambeth Country Show 2014.
