Youths are being encouraged to invest in small businesses to fight unemployment.
Wangeci Warui an educationist, businesswoman and philanthropist has asked the young people not to lose hope should they fail to secure white collar jobs.
“I have met with some people saying that there are no jobs that you have papers and everything I want to tell you that it’s not a must, you can still venture into small businesses and earn a living,” she said.
Wangeci says that converting businesses ideas into practice has made her what she is, urging youth to shun white collar jobs that are not there.
” It is not a must that you have Ksh. 1,000,000 before starting a business what you need is an idea and small capital,” she added.
Wangeci currently lectures at Vision Institute where she also doubles up as a director.
She also has passion to help and give back to the community, a drive that has seen her sponsor many students as well as nurture talents.
“I have a football club, most of the players did not complete their education I have been able to engage them and paying fees for some,” she added.
