Thoughts From A Young Zimbabwean Entrepreneur

Farai Munjoma is a 19-year-old entrepreneur from Zimbabwe and the face behind e-learning platform, Shasha Iseminar. The platform offers a free online library of courses and study notes, past exams and career guidance to A-level high school students in the country.

Munjoma decided to make it a free service to reduce the financial barrier to information that the high cost of good textbooks had created for many underprivileged students. He generates revenue from selling advertising space to companies and organisations looking to specifically target Zimbabwean students.

His advice to aspiring entrepreneurs is to be prepared to face obstacles, let their passion drive them, and their focus should be more on making an impact than making money. 

His words :“When you have a good idea and that burning desire within to bring change, do not have anyone tell you that you can’t do it or let any situation stop you from achieving your dream. Because the first thing you will face will be challenges. As I was coming up with this project I had people try discouraging me. But the number one rule is not to think too much – just do it. As you go through your journey it will make more sense to other people.”.
