Meet the recipient of the Entrepreneur award, Fazila Lulat, she truly is the queen of cakes and all things dessert in Zambia and has managed to build a strong and reliable brand for her cake business. She has been running her business for the past 15 years. Since its inception, House of Cakes has grown to be one of the most sought-after and creative cake houses in Zambia. The House of Cakes founder is a true testament that determination and hard work does pay off. She said of her award by Stanbic Bank through Anakazi Banking “It was one of my proudest moments to win such an accolade, particularly because cake-making is such a small niche business but a viable business, nonetheless. Winning the award means there is hope for men and women out there who are willing to take risks and branch out of mainstream careers to do what they love.
I have learnt effective communication and managerial techniques for effective business. The fact that Anakazi is also providing masterclasses to women to help them become better entrepreneurs is a good development.” Despite her busy schedule Mrs. Lulat always puts her family first, although juggling family life and business can be a challenge, she makes sure to spend quality time with her family
