  • What are your tips for growing a company?

A very important tip for me is “watch your market and adapt to it”. You need to understand what your customers want at every given time, and ensure you provide it.

Impact of inflation on prices of everyday items is forcing many women to make tough choices, so in my work, at Koyo Nation I try to adapt to that by ensuring we only offer the best price deals and 10/10 customer experience in the country so that people can still afford the basic living standards.

My family, more so my younger brothers. Family is everything!

I have very bad aim when it comes to throwing stuffs, lol. Things literally go in a different direction than intended.
