Although she comes from a long line of entrepreneurs, 29-year-old Sandra Mwiihangele says her journey in to entrepreneurship wasn’t easy. As a child, her stammering made her a laughing stock. By the age of 11, though, she won the gold medal at the Namibian Expo of Young Scientists for developing a high-performance matte lipstick. She is now the owner of Kiyomisandz Beauty Products, a cosmetic- and- toiletry-manufacturing company based in Namibia.
