06 Sep Success Meets Hardwork: Hannah Ndomahina of Tripple A’s Kids World & Enterprise
Hannah Ndomahina’s passion are children and seeing them happy makes her happy. So when she realised that there was no company in Sierra Leone concentrating on events and party favours for children, she decided to use her savings to start the Tripple A’s Kids World & Enterprise in December 2011 as she did not only want to fulfill her passion but also play a vital role in the development of her motherland.

What made you decide to embark on rendering these services?
My passion for kids and seeing them always happy is my drive. I noticed a gap in lack of focus on solely kids planning and events as a whole package. This was the main objective that drove me into the establishment of Tripple A’s kid’s world and Enterprise.
What influenced your decision to become an entrepreneur?
Knowing Sierra Leone is a developing country and after identifying this gap in kids’ event. I couldn’t sit back and wait for another foreigner to come and close the gap when I could fill that gap and play a vital role in the development of my mother land.
To what do you attribute your success?
Our dedication in fulfilling the desired outcome and the positive feedback from our clients. This whole dedication has entailed catering for all kinds of people. Tripple A’s doesn’t have a barrier of who it caters for.
Lack of capital is often cited as one of the most challenging parts of being an African entrepreneur. How were you able to fund your business?
Through years of disciplined saving as a civil servant with back-up of financial and moral support from my husband and few family members enabled me to set up this venture with commitment and passion.
What piece of advice would you give to other Africans just starting out?
Africans need to work on their attitude on financial discipline regardless of their current income and ignore the “PULLING DOWN SYNDROME”
What are some of the biggest mistakes you’ve made? How did you recover?
A major mistake I made was being sympathetic in the selection of the first set of items in Tripple A’s and this led to the damage of the enterprise’s assets. I immediately noticed and made amends by being more disciplined in my decision and selection of who represents the image of the enterprise.
