A civil/structural engineer, Robert Ahen Chenge, has said that with the help of his mother, he was able to set his own construction company at 21 years old before he finished the university.
He got a versatile team of people together and ran a company he called Greencharge Royale Limited, giving customers the best service delivery.
Robert added that his brother also joined and served the company for 9 years as a CEO.
The company’s huge break came between 2013 and 2014. He added that the company sponsored his education at the University of Manchester for his masters.
With the Greencharge’s profitability, he was also able to sponsor his lifestyle, adding that he got married to the love of his life too.
While thanking God for how far he has come, he said that he would like to give himself more to public/social services.
He asked people to help him choose what would be the way to help people between Civil service (engineer), Community NGO services, politics for community development, and PhD in civil engineering.

Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za earlier reported that the story of Paul Orajiaka is a perfect example that African youths have great entrepreneurial spirits that could turn the least sought-after thing into an empire.
The CEO of four-story Auldon Toys building, Paul has his business situated in one of the busiest places in Lagos state, the nation’s economic valve.

Paul had to start from a very humble place. He began his toy-selling business at the young age of 18.
At that age, he would buy from a big local trader and resell it to Park ‘n’ Shop just for a very tiny profit. It is interesting to note that he was doing that as a side hustle to his day job.
“I am passionate about toys because I didn’t grow up with them. My dad had a strict worldview of work overplay, so he brought us up working in his craft shop to learn how to make wood carvings rather than letting us play with mates,” he said.
