About Me: 

I am an author and entrepreneur.

I am the project co-coordinator for mobile money biz loan for women.

I am passionate about, women empowerment, youth development and entrepreneurship.

Women in my community find it hard logging on and coming online for the following reasons

i. They don't know how to use the computer and the internet.
ii. They can't afford to get a personal computer.
iii. They think learning how to use the computer is hard.
iv. The cost of internet access is high.
v. The challenge of power (electricity) is also very high.

The local library can make it easy for women to use the internet by providing trainers to help train these women on how to use the computer and to make the cost of accessing the internet very cheap.

I have a cyber cafe where I render computer and internet services, so I help women who do not know how to use the computer and the internet who come to me, I also tell them the importance of knowing how to use the internet. I also recommend other trainers to them who can help train them. I will also start including computer training in the women vocational skills program I hold.

I have my own computer and internet in my office, so I feel safe going online, I use the internet every day, that's to tell you how safe I am. The government and technology companies should help in making our websites more secured from hackers.

My Passions: 
Women Empowerment, Entrepreneurship,surfing the internet for information, writting, and reading business, motivational, success and inspirational books
