” I was the oldest in my class and they were calling me “Class one papa”. I couldn’t blame them because I was a 13 year old in the same class with 2 and 3 year olds. Even though I was supposed to be embarrassed, I wasn’t because I was thrilled to about being able to learn and seeing cars which has always been my dream.” Benjamin disclosed.

Even though he was excited about going to school, his parents couldn’t afford his school fees so he had to help his father in the fishing business to sponsor his education. He further dived into illegal mining otherwise known as “Galamsey” to be able to pay for his other needs at school.

Well, after going through all this hardships, Benjamin Angenu finally completed senior high school and some friends of his introduced him to a network marketing business which has gradually molded him into the business tycoon he is today.

” To be honest with you, starting my business with Forever Living was difficult because I had a lot of people including family and friends who never believed in me. I almost gave up but I knew there was a bright light at the end of the tunnel for me so I pushed harder and by the Grace of God, I am now the highest earner and the breadwinner in my family. Aside the numerous financial benefits I got, I had the opportunity to travel to countries like USA, UK, SWEDEN, and many more.” He narrated.
