Meet Patricia
Patricia learned the fundamentals of entrepreneurship as a little girl by selling on markets with her mother during holidays.
Early milestones
Coming from a family of farmers, her business sense and work ethic helped her to finance her education at University from which she graduated with a Master’s degree in Business Law. Without an office to her name and with very little resources, Patricia started QuickCash in 2010. Her company makes it easier for rural people and workers in the informal sector to make money transfers.
Growing recognition
Her work has been richly awarded for her business achievements and social impact. Examples include the Chevalier de l’Ordre National et du Mérite, the Prix Spécial du Premier Ministre Côte d’Ivoire, and the Prix National d’Excellence de la Présidence de la République. Patricia is also an Ambassador of the African Development Fund of the AfDB since 2019 and has been designated as one of the top 100 most influent people in Côte d’Ivoire by “Who's Who”.
The way forward
Staying close to her roots, Patricia has now expanded her empire by creating two other firms: Digital Hub, in the fin-tech sector, which enables small vendors to accept mobile payments, and CanaanLand, which provides services to small-scale farmers
