Kate Dunbar is the owner of Petite Rêve’s Chocolates, a business she created while enrolled in a Women’s Economic Ventures self-employment training course in Santa Barbara. A Women’s Conference scholarship helped pay for her tuition. Dunbar had been making the chocolates for her husband as Valentine’s Day gifts for two years. The idea to make it a business happened during the training course. Within four months of completing the course, Petite Rêve – “little dream” in French -- became a reality.
