Nominated Senator Millicent Nyaboke Omanga disclosed that she made her first Million at 19 and managed to buy her first car at the age of 20.
I made my first million at 19 - Senator Millicent Omanga
Milly wa ma-bedsheets...Kazi ni Kazi - Omanga
Appearing on Jessy Junction, Omanga aka Mama Miradi, said that the money was as a result of supplying bedsheets to a hotel in Eldoret. At that time, she was still a student at The University of Nairobi.
“When I joined University, I started my business, I made my first million when I was 19 years old and by 20 I bought my new car. And even those I was with at the University could tell you Milly was a rich girl and not because I was being given money by my parents.
I would use the school, Kidogo, unaenda unanunua vitu, unauza and by the time exam inafika pesa yangu nitakuwa nimeiroll for three months imeleta profit na nimelipa school fees and I continued like that” said Senator Omanga.
The Jubilee Senator went on to explain that the one million was as a result of supplying bedsheets to a Hotel in Eldoret.
“…I was selling merchandise, including bed sheets…I’m one of the biggest suppliers of bedsheets in this county up to date…
“I supplied a hotel in Eldoret called Mariot…that had 60 rooms and my working capital was not that much, so I went to the bank and they only gave me 150K basing on my transactions... so I went and bought the bedsheets and supplied and that’s how I got my first million…I was paid cash” said Millicent Omanga.
Omanga also took to social media saying; “ Milly wa ma-bedsheets. Hapo ndio story yangu ilianzia na bado ndio hustle yangu mpaka wa leo and at 19 years I made my first million. Kazi ni Kazi na inawezekana watu wangu 🙏. #MamaMiradi
