Sana’s Instagram account became a magical place where her creations came to life, attracting a whopping nearly 3k followers. Beyond the online world, her popularity soared, with 3.9K followers eagerly waiting to see her latest mouthwatering treats.

The journey wasn’t always smooth for Sana.

Challenges She Still Faces:

Sana still deals with some difficulties even though she’s doing well. Here are the things that make her job a bit tricky:

Delivery Troubles: Getting her cakes to people on time is sometimes hard. There’s no proper delivery service in town, so she has to figure out how to make sure her cakes reach customers right and in good shape. She has to either do it herself or find different ways to solve this problem.

Specific Orders Challenge: Sana likes making special cakes for people, but it’s not always easy. To make these unique cakes, she has to buy things like fondants from different online shops. Coordinating all these orders and making sure everything arrives on time can be a bit of a puzzle.

Cost Issues: Even though Sana works hard and makes great cakes, some people in Chakwal don’t realize how much effort goes into her work. They often ask her to charge less for her cakes. This makes it tough for Sana to keep her business going and pay for good ingredients and supplies. Explaining the value of her work to customers is an ongoing challenge.

Despite these challenges, Sana keeps going. She finds ways to balance her love for baking with the practical parts of running a successful cakery. Her determination to bring joy with her cakes helps her tackle each problem, turning them into chances to grow and learn. As she faces these challenges, Sana stays focused on the happiness her cakes bring to people’s lives, helping her overcome the tough parts of her journey.
