A real estate and hospitality graduate turned TV presenter and now farmer, Mavis Nduchwa has done it all. Mavis’ journey to entrepreneurship goes as far back as when she was in boarding school, where she ordered and sold sweets to fellow students, and helped some students write their essays and letters for a small fee. So, it was no surprise that all through her career changes, Mavis always knew that she would someday be her own boss.
Mavis is passionate about the environment and nature. She is currently a manager at Safari Lodge, something she has been doing for the past ten years.

Mavis enjoys gardening and travelling and hopes to empower her community with agriculture.
