We have to start a business so that men can’t dominate us, so that we can do things by ourselves. When I was nominated as the women entrepreneur of the year by the Prince’s Trust Youth Business International in 2003. I thought it was a joke. I couldn’t believe I had to go to London.

But now I am known by everyone.” She has now sold her tyre retreading business and started a mushroom farm and an orchard in Gedu.
