Story of of Barisuka

About 3yrs ago I was diagnosed with kidney failure. I was still treating it, next thing I heard was liver failure!

I fought this for 2 years straight. I never responded to treatment. I used plain white sheets on my bed at the time and whenever I wake up in the morning, I'd see about a million strands of hair on the bed. I was loosing hair faster than anything.

Some days I woke up crying but then I stop a few minutes in, hit myself on the chest and say to myself this thing will not kill me!

I knew I was destined for greatness so I was very sure I won't die any time soon. I would survive it.

So I fought. I fought hard. Everyday. I was my own medicine. I was my doctor and with God's mercy, I'm still here.

I still apply that resilient spirit in everything I do. I'm being tested again with this entrepreneurship journey and trust me, it hasn't been easy. What I'm building if done properly will change everything you know about your bank and the financial sector in general. It's a tall task, it's gonna be hard, everyone has told me "this is a difficult thing you're going into, everyone that has done it or is still doing it have not had much success" but when I hear "it's hard", that's the more reason I want to do it. Nothing great comes easy.

I'd be lying if I say I don't get scared sometimes or just want to drop the whole idea and do something else. Sometimes
I see myself in the future doing too much to make the business succeed. I see myself getting punched in the face by the market but then I also imagine myself winning. I see myself vacationing at the most luxurious islands around the world and that's enough drive for me to push one more time.

Life might still punch me in the face (life's a bitch!), I might not be who I want to be at the end of the day but one thing I know is, I won't be a failure. I won't be at my old age with regrets. I'd know I gave a shot at life, I lived, I pushed through, I fought with everything I had, I was hungry for more every day!

So until then, I would never settle because I deserve more.

Because I'm determined.

Because I'm all in.

I encourage you to do the same.

Start now!
