Emerging entrepreneurs share Anzisha Prize

African Leadership Academy and Mastercard Foundation confirm that 22 year old Ibrahima Ben Aziz Konate from Cote D’Ivoire has been awarded the top prize at the seventh annual Anzisha Prize awards gala.

Ibrahima Ben Aziz is the founder of Poultry D’Or, a poultry business that often has over 500 sales a day and employs 15 people.

Ibrahima was selected from a competitive pool of diverse entrepreneurs from 14 African countries.

“It is hard to believe that I was chosen as the winner of the prize. It has been a dream of mine to join the Anzisha Prize network since I first heard about it. The US25 000 is the difference that I need to scale my business and show the young people in my community that entrepreneurship is possible, even at a very young age,” said Ibrahima.
