Mifuko's mission is to bring joy to our customers while improving the welfare of women in the rural areas of Kenya. We are guided by our core values in everything we do: unique, joyful and socially responsible. Just as every one of our artisans is unique so are the products he or she makes.  We hope you agree that uniqueness also shows in our designs.

Mifuko is World Trade Fair Organization certified member

In contrast to commodity certifiers, the WFTO Guarantee System assesses the entirety of a business, not just a specific product, ingredient or supply chain. It includes an assessment of the enterprise’s structure and business model, its operations and its supply chains.

Mifuko = Social enterprise + Fair Trade
