Kimani Ichung’wa Career

He sent his resume to many banks after graduating from college, but he never heard back. Then he started working for a shoe business that his brother and several friends from Uganda had founded.

He would venture out and advertise the shoes in other locations. He applied for a position with Unilever, but after being rejected, he was hired by DiverseyLever, a division of the company.

Ichung’wa gave up his job and opened his own butcher shop two years later. On a piece of land his father gave him, he established his company’s facilities.

“For many years, my father worked as a butcher, and he owned land close to a potential bus stop. I pleaded with him to allow me a little plot so I could build a butcher shop. I told him I intended to resign from my job at the end of the year. I started my business since my dad was generous enough to provide me some room” he told the Daily Nation.

When he first started his butchery business, his buddies made fun of him, but that didn’t stop Ichungwa, who later opened two more meat shops.

“When I started my butchery business, some of my peers made fun of me.’With all of your education, the best you can do is manage the butcher shop your illiterate father ran.? They would repeatedly question me. However, Ichung’wa said, “I promised I would do it, and I did it.”

His search for a job continued, and he was fortunate to be summoned for two positions for which he had applied. Although Corn Products offered a greater salary, he chose Madison since it was closer to his butchery and would help him run his business more successfully.

He left the insurance company at the end of 2006 to work for Standard Media Group PLC as an accountant.
