  1. I love to be part of the 2020 McKinsey women achievement award programme. I am from Africa precisely Cameroon. A female teacher and also owns and direct a nursery and Primary school. On the other hand, due to the changing circumstances of time, as a dynamic woman, I am involved in agriculture. Specifically producing pepper and palm oil. Through this I have a labour force to enable me carryout these activities. I am also a female leader in my community. I organise and empower women from time to time, counsel them on marital issues and how to support their homes.
    Notwithstanding I am limited in the area of finance to an extent. I there need a push to enable me achieve this gold.
