 The path towards lighting up the candle (and local) business

Risorsa 13_4x.png

Cheptoo is the co-founder of The Hills Collection, together with her sister Chebet.


Cheptoo has a Management academic background and she had previously worked in logistics and procurement. On the other side, Chebet obtained a master's in marketing and worked in the same field. Both of them lived and studied in the UK, deciding then to go back to Kenya in order to develop their professional careers in their hometown.


During lockdown, they decided to start their own candle business. Now, they are looking for opportunities to improve what they are currently producing and, why not, broaden their product range.​

Our complementary personalities and the skills acquired from our different backgrounds make the perfect balance for The Hills Collection
