Our story starts way back when technology gave our founder headway and she decided to show and help other women get the same.
In 2018, I was 25, a fresh graduate from the university, I had just separated from my then abusive husband and fled with my son. I had no job, had a neurological breakdown, was broke and had a 2-year-old son; I was desperate to survive. In all of this, I realized that the African society is not kind to helpless women and there were not many options for me. Despite being a graduate of Medical Laboratory Science, when life hit me hard, like it does to more than 21 percent of Women in the world, the only lifeline I found to rebuild myself was through technology and digital solutions. As soon as I began to make head way, I was determined to help other women do the same as well.
