Angola Success Stories
Angola. Edna had to balance her work with her MBS course training. But it was all worth it and she is now able to manage her business using what she learned from the MBS.
Hello, I’m Edna Chitombi, and I live in Angola. I started in the commercial world 18 years ago working as a Cashier Operator but three years later I stopped working and enrolled in the Gregório Semedo University for a degree in Business Organization and Management. While I was graduating I opened a hair salon, I had other street businesses such as: selling clothes, jewelry, cement, drinks, etc. For 12 years I have been an Insurance Broker and also a Store Manager in a hypermarket in the country. I like sports and I practice a modality called Crav-Maga – Personal Defense. I have already participated in some community activities in orphanages taking food and school supplies, and helping in the cleaning in my community. This course was a challenge for me, because reconciling work and training was not an easy task. However, each Unit was encouraging me not to give up and I could discover new skills, new perspectives of interior, family and community change, and with this knowledge I can impact other people’s lives. Before the course, my street business was done in an empirical way, I had no concept that my Wheel of Quality of Life was unbalanced and the MBS has totally changed the concept I was using, it also gave me a different vision of business, and I learned the step by step process to create a business, in an uncomplicated way using the necessary tools. I must thank the brilliant initiative of Interweave Solutions in choosing my country to be part of this Project.
Angola. Simão Pedro used his talents to grow professionally and support his community. Read what he says about MBS: “Each lesson was a game changer in my professional career and commitment to my community”
Simão Pedro José, Angolan, 31 years old, I am a teacher by profession, and have a communicative and dominant character.. Since very early on, I have been committed to learning continuously in order to improve my life. I never had the opportunity to have a financial education that would allow me to improve my life. As a public servant, I go through many financial needs. Knowing the course, I realized that my life could change significantly. Through everything I learned in this course, I created a business plan in the academic area, where through my training I will provide training, mentoring and consulting. I have everything ready to start. Thanks to the Course and to Interweave Solutions. You have changed my life.
Angola. Just a click on the Facebook page and curiosity led Pascoal Jamba to get to know and dedicate himself to the MBS program. According to him (…) it was worth clicking on that post (…)
My name is Pascoal Jamba Catiavala, I’m 27 years old, Angolan. I have a degree in Economics and Management from the Jean Piaget University of Angola, and for the last few years, I have been working as a high school teacher in the subjects of Introduction to Economics, Economic and Social Development, and Entrepreneurship. I am fascinated by innovative businesses, and I am a very simple, persevering, and knowledge-loving person.
I accessed MBS first out of curiosity because nobody had told me anything about it. I simply saw the post on Facebook and clicked. And during this training period, I had an incredible experience and each unit took me to another one because the content is very clear, objective, and practical. And I had a very patient mentor, who was always available to help me in whatever I needed. And today I say that it was worthwhile to have clicked on that post because today I am a person completely prepared to open a business and become a Success Ambassador for Interweave Solutions in my community.
Angola. Henrique Chissingui is a natural entrepreneur. Always with great ideas and willingness to do business. But, after trying in some areas, success came through the MBS course. According to him, “This course changed my way of thinking and this is the guarantee of my success”.
My name is Henriques Elias Chissingui. I’m Angolan and I live in Camacupa municipality, in the province of Bié. I am 36 years old and I am a teacher. I have a reasonable salary that covers the needs of my family. Due to family problems, in 2019 I started to lose a large part of my monthly salary. I felt a lot of stress and exhaustion, because at that moment I was trying to validate the undergraduate degree I got in Brazil, which brought me more expenses. I began to feel the lack of money and I asked the bank for a four-month salary advance to pay it off in one year. When I received this amount, I used part of it to pay for school and the other part I used to open a business called HC-ENCOMENDAS. I advertised it on Facebook, WhatsApp, and I told close friends who ordered the clothes I bought from Luanda, the capital of Angola. They paid for the clothes on credit but, as of December 2020, some still have not been able to settle the debt. This is how I met the death of my business. Instead of improving my life, I made it worse. I looked for a tutoring center and was able to learn a little about planning, business identification, and management. But, the solution came the day I was scrolling through Facebook and saw the Interweave Solutions ad. I read about the program and clicked on the WhatsApp button, which directed me to the course. My Mentor Cynthya Freitas answered my message and, feeling a little suspicious, I asked her if that ad was really true, or just a fake page to trick people. My mentor promptly answered me: “Would you like to know a little more about Interweave? I can send you a video.” I then decided to register and start the course.
Throughout the course, I learned things that, if I had known before, today I would have significantly improved my life, my family, and my community. With this course, I was able to discover the success of an entrepreneur, and now my vision is so much clearer and I find business opportunities everywhere I go. The course is inspiring and today I am able to save money on a daily basis.
I recommend this course to everyone who wants to improve their personal life, their family life, and their community. MBS changed my way of thinking and this is the guarantee of my success.
