Wandia's passage to entrepreneurship was not the easiest. As a former World Bank Executive, Wandia now runs a business providing affordable health and fitness clothing in Kenya. She most definitely thrived in employment which begs the question, why start something new? For Wandia Gichuru who spent fifteen [15] years working with the United Nations, World Bank and the UK government, the reason was restlessness and a longing to actively assist in alleviating poverty in Kenya. Wandia will let us in on how journey from Ideation to success and how she keeps growing and supporting young entrepreneurs.
