Elsia Pierre

Elsia has two passions; singing and gardening. Previously a very famous singer in Seychelles she now looks to her other passion to produce value added products from traditional medicinal plants. She has decided to start with arrowroot, a famous plant in Seychelles used to make baby food and traditional medicine. She would like to promote the benefits of this indigenous knowledge while also commercialising it. She would like to have financial support to build a small factory to make custard from arrowroot for babies as well as the elderly people.
