Coming from a family that operates in the ethanol business for almost 20 years in Togo, I describe myself brilliant, sociable, multitasking and self-taught, I am also a writer. Although trained in finance and project management accounting, I became interested in entrepreneurship and biotechnology very early on, by discovering business opportunities. I attended several courses and after my bachelor in university, I gained experiences and develop skills in some SMEs and in a large company; I even co-founded an online sales platform that I call “Divine Trader” where I gathered more than 250 young people with whom we work remotely where everyone earns in the form of commissions using social networks to boost sales a partner company (DIVINE IMEX SARL) operating in the Import-Export of therapeutic coffee.
On my business journey I met people who shared my vision. Step by step we formed a team and started the market research and feasibility of the project. I made partnerships to move forward despite several doors slamming in my face. Today we had made a lot of progress;
Our project is interesting most people and we have a strong business plan ready to go to the implementation stage of our processing unit.
