Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development

Maré de Sabores catering service is responsible for financing the Project Maré de Sabores. It started upon women who took the Projects gastronomy courses and demanded to work on their own neighborhood and increase job and income creation there. We then established Maré de Sabores as a catering company. By providing catering for private and institutional events, women are directly remunerated for their work. It increases their income and therefore, enable them to be financially autonomous and reflect on gender issues, often encouraging women to break a financial cycle of dependency, based on husbands impositions and repression. Such cycle is often responsible for perpetuating domestic violence in the favelas, and this might be by far one of the worse problems women from Maré (and from the favelas) face. Aqui tem comida de favela ("here we have food from the favela") is Maré de Sabores motto. The gastronomy courses teach both international and Brazilian gastronomy, always mentioning the importance of using local and fresh ingredients, as opposed to processed food. Given that the favelas are frequently portrayed with stigmas of want and violence, the course aims to prove the favela as a territory full of creativity, power and individual aspirations for wider rights - never fully granted nor acknowledged by the government. Several teaching modules enable women to work both in the formal market or to establish their own startup. In addition to the cooking practice, classes are complemented by gender and citizenship discussions, aimed to empower women and encourage them to think about autonomy, self-esteem, self-awareness and their role and rights in society. The project gave birth to Casa das Mulheres - Women's House, a 3-storey building that has professional and fully-equipped kitchen and space for gastronomy and citizenship classes.

Sustainability and future plans

We generate capital with the events we produce. i.e: with a cocktail for 100 guests, in universities, companies, parties or gatherings, we can charge 39 BRL (10USD) for person. With this amount we are capable of covering supply costs, which account for 35% of the total amount; 25% is directed to generating direct income for women in Maré involved at the event's production and service; 20% cover the company's fix costs; 20% is directed to our original Project, Maré de Sabores. Maré de Sabores is project part of Redes da Maré, a NGO that is present in Maré for the over 20 years, with structuring projects oriented by five axes: Education, Communication, Art and Culture, Public Security and Territorial Development - Maré de Sabores' axis. Maré de Sabores has been undertaking gastronomy, gender and female entrepreneurship workshops for women of Maré for the past nine years; up to now, over 600 have been qualified. Catering Maré de Sabores was created precisely from the workshops and from the impetus women gained from it. Maré de Sabores became a legal company for social impact three years ago, aiming to give further sustainability to the Project and improve the life quality of women from Maré. Maré de Sabores annual budget is of 50.000 USD. If we produce 12 events/month, estimating 100 guests (10 USD each) we will achieve our goal of providing sustainability to the Project Maré de Sabores - something we wish to accomplish by 2021. It we establish a goal twice as higher, we might create new alternatives of entrepreneurship projects for the women of Maré, together with Maré de Sabores. Our goal is to establish it up to 2024.

Hi Mariana

Your project and the thought behind it are both inspiring. I hope your dreams are realised and this project achieves what it has set out. The way you are targetting events rather than daily life through food is genius, since people in their everyday life are gradually moving back to home food but prefer grander menu for occasions and events.

Let's continue to support each other and pace ahead together forward. Vote and comment if you like my idea at https://www.entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/22/16112

Hello

Welcome to the campus life am inviting you to join my friendship circle where we will vote each other and comment on each other idea. kindly leave a link to your idea on mine. Thank you

REMBER:

We all know that as entrepreneurs we need to wear many hats. We often accountable for a wide range of responsibilities from marketing and business development to accounting and inventory control. As a business grows and begins to see some cash flow , however I encourage entrepreneurs to get help with the tasks that they either can't do well or that don't utilize their core strengths. At that point , having well-developed leadership skills is critical to success.

Hello Mariana, I have been wondering where the aromatic scent on this campus is coming from. It has been you all this time. Lol. Your project is inspirational. A catering unit full of events.

How do you manage to get all that traction? What is the secret? Are you just confined in your country? What happens when you have to cross the border? You should explore more clientele abroad.

What is the selling point of your product? Is there a special meal that has seen you soar higher and higher?

Hi Mariana,

First welcome to Campus. You are doing a very good job in your neighbourhood of empowering and training women on how to live a dependent free life. As such, you also train them to be their own boss/leader and in turn, create job opportunity for them. If I were you, I will look through what other organisations/businesses like mine are doing and use that info to stand out from the rest of the competition and also to keep scoring points from my customers.

With this, I invite you to read, vote and comment on my idea by leaving your thoughts on my project page through the link below.
