“Success is not final,failure is not fatal : it is the courage to continue that counts.”Winston Churchill’
Aurelie Kasongo,born 26 september 1995 founder of BibiAfrica.
I started my career in a call center where I worked for about 9 months in the customer care department.Then,resigned to start my own company BibiAfrica.
It took me a lot of courage to have my own start-up specially when you know there won’t be a salary anymore.But,the idea of working 24 hours for my own company was better than working 8 hours for someone only to be undervalue at the end of the month by the number of zero that kicks into your bank account.
Exactly a month after my resignation,BibiAfrica was launched with about 150 to 200 guests.the business is being discovered by people here in South Africa,In the United States of America,Few countries in Africa and I am still giving my best to be known in the world.
BibiAfrica main focus is to supply African fabric in South Africa for now but the big picture is to be a supplier in the world.We supply handmade accessories and clothing all made with african fabrics.
Why Africa in everything? well,for me Africa is the most beautiful place to be.africans go through all kind of problems,changes,…but still a smile on an African face is a treasure.(By african I do not mean race but origin).
Africa and africans have been undervalued for a long time now but we are waking up.The african music is trending,the style and fashion is being worn everywhere let not even talk about our food!lol
I am here to be a young African who will influence all other with dreams.All this was my dream,then became a vision and now a reality! all is possible we just have to believe and work hard.
