Tshering has worked in a bakery (Om Bakery, Thimphu) as well as a café (Meraki Café, Thimphu). She has a high school diploma and works as a home-based baker. She has operated a home-based cake and pastries business in Tsirang since November 2020.
Tshering observes that, despite Tsirang’s reputation for agricultural product output, there are no facilities for people to congregate, interact, and eat delicious meals. Tshering’s goal was to provide residents of the community with high-quality, sustainable, and healthful soul food.
She intends to run her business by leveraging locally produced goods that are readily available in the area, thereby reducing the amount of packaged and canned food.
