Pamela is an 18-year-old entrepreneur living in the Gokwe South District of Zimbabwe where she has been successfully operating a grocery shop for over nine months. She is a supplier of sugar, cooking oil, stationery and flour. Aside from running her store, she is very passionate about the wellbeing of her community. Specifically, she is very active in assisting families that are led by children when their parents have passed away.

With the additional profits, she hopes to expand her business into a large supermarket and create employment for other young people in the community.
