Olive Gachara, one of Kenya’s formidable entrepreneurs launched her first business at the tender age of 19 and has not looked back since.
At 28, she was worth over Sh 45 Million and that may have risen substantially since she turned 30 last year.
Besides her many business ventures, Gachara is one of the ‘lionesses’ in NTV’s ‘Shark Tank’ inspired reality show ‘Lions’ Den.’
Produced by KCB Bank Kenya, NTV and Quite Bright Films Kenya (QBF), Lions’ Den gives budding Kenyan entrepreneurs a chance to actualize their dreams.
Gachara is the editor in chief of Couture Magazine. She is also the founder of ‘Image with Olive’, an image consultancy which offers services on personal branding, communication skills, professional image, and etiquette.
The consultancy boasts of multinational corporations as its clients- including Barclays, CFC Stanbic Bank, Farmer’s Choice, and KPMG.
Being one of Kenya’s richest entrepreneurs, Olive lives large as evidenced by the car she drives.
She cruises in a 2016 Jaguar XE 20t Prestige whose worth closer to the Sh 10 million mark.
“Taken my car to RMA Kenya for service, then this #CourtesyCar #AllAboutConvenience #WhatCustomerServiceLooksLike” Olive captioned a photo of her wheels.
