Mind Your Business with Engineer Victor Ngatia at Fatuma’s Voice Nakuru
At the hub of Nakuru, wee hours, many young people straddle off their feet in search of a job, any job that can help sustain their daily needs.
Being one of the fastest growing towns in East and Central Africa, Nakuru is experiencing myriad problems and unemployment tops the list. The entrepreneurship field is hard faced, leading to some youthful individuals to engage in criminal works to fend for themselves. Where is the rot?
At 38, Victor Ngatia has built a notable logistics company that has been a reference for many as inspiration. Victor grew up in Shabaab area of Nakuru Town West Constituency. He went to Mama Ngina Primary School in his early years, proceeding to Nyeri Baptist High School before finally getting his Bachelor’s Degree in Environment and Bio-systems Engineering in 2003.
Having worked in prominent companies including: Toyota (Kericho branch), Keroche Industries and Kuehne+Nagel, Victor founded Cynkey Ltd., in 2008.
He joins Fatuma’s Voice as a guest to engage us on the value of venturing into entrepreneurship, the mentality needed to be acquired as young people to make business a viable career and what the youth in Nakuru need to take up in order to create opportunities for themselves and their communities.
We invite you to this conversation and would like to listen to your insights on the same, whether you own a business, are considering to open one or are in the process of learning more about entrepreneurship.
Poetry and music shall be served on the evening.
