Heni Sugiyarti learnt to bake various sweet treats — pineapple tarts, burnt cheesecake and brownies — online to make ends meet.
Supporting 4 kids
In a Facebook post on May 6, former Member of Parliament Amrin Amin shared that Heni lives in a rental flat in Jalan Kukoh.
Described to have a "never-say-die" attitude, the enterprising mother of four started a home-based business selling bakes as her husband is unable to work due to a nerve condition.
Heni is also having a small bake sale with the help of volunteers from Project Cookoh.
Project Cookoh is an initiative that started during the Circuit Breaker helping stay-at-home mums start home-based businesses in Jalan Kukoh.
These mums are also part of the Readable community. Since January 2014, ReadAble has been running weekly reading and language arts classes for children ages two to 15 in a Chin Swee neighbourhood.
