From A Former Domestic Helper to a Mushroom Entrepreneur

ButtonsUp Farm started with less little capital, now it’s now growing!

Former Domestic Helper to a Mushroom Entrepreneur

ButtonsUp Mushroom Farm was founded by a former Domestic Helper in Singapore.

Egay attended trainings and seminars about mushroom farming but just like most of us, her problem is capital. Luckily, Egay was able to built ButtonsUp Farm with the help of fellow OFWs, friends and loved ones. Department of Agriculture supported the farm all the way too

The farm is a story of friendship, love and helping one another. Working abroad is not easy, there are a lot of trials, hardships and that became determination of Egay- ButtonsUP Founder.
