Esther Wanjiru Gathigi: Stop Talking and Start Doing


Esther Wanjiru Gathigi surprised many people – herself included – when she left a burgeoning career in banking to oversee the launch of a new community center in Nairobi supporting women entrepreneurs. And although the recently opened WECREATE KENYA has the initial support of the US Department of State, the Caterpillar Foundation, the African Women’s Entrepreneurship Program, Youth Banner and the global WECREATE initiative implementers – StartUp Cup – the goal is for the social impact business to become completely self-sustaining within 17 months.

In short, there’s a lot of hustle on the road ahead.
