Please provide examples of any previous entrepreneurial initiatives you have pioneered.
I launched cibleshopper.com in 2013 which was a page on facebook where I posted good local and international deals for my followers to purchase. Furthermore, in August 2015 together with Pearl Louma we launched a new clothing line called SPELL. The SPELL brand is into suits and casual outfits for both male and female. We have had a lot of orders till date worth about $3000 and an average outfit is $130. We have concentrated on the branding which portrays a high lifestyle for the youths. The male suit designs are unique and we have had a lot of orders for them. We got into a runway show just 2 weeks after launching our Instagram and Facebook pages.
Beyond your existing team, who else are you working with to achieve your objectives, eg partners, advisors, mentors?
I am working with the commercial Director of Santa Lucia Douala, Mr Eric Lemdja who helped me secure the distribution of these bags through their network. Santa Lucia is now a partner.
I am also working with Mrs Uphie Chinje who is the Managing Director of Mipromalo, a company which manufactures building materials. She is the one who connected me to her suppliers in China who will produce the bags for me.
