“⁠I take a lot from my mom. My mom is creative and I always had that in me as well. When I was around 24, I started an events business, which started becoming hard for me to do because I didn’t have a car at the time. Eventually, I had to take a break from it, but whilst I was doing events, I was always fascinated by the flower business but I didn’t look into it further.
“In 2023, one of my friends always used to buy flowers for me at this particular shop and ended up meeting a girl who worked at that flower shop who expressed how much she wanted to start her flower shop.
“My friend then suggested that she go into partnership with me because he knew how much I loved flowers. It’s only been a few weeks since launching the business, but the amount of support we have received is tremendous.”

The entrepreneur’s business is called Amora Blooms and she dreams of expanding her enterprise in the future:
