This week on Radio Free Acton, Magatte Wade joins us to discuss the challenges and rewards of being an entrepreneur in Africa. Too often, people in the West tend to think of Africa as a place to send aid rather than a place to engage in trade. Magatte is working to change that attitude while building her beauty company, Tiossan, as well as the local economy in her native Senegal.
Wade will be joining us as a plenary speaker at Acton University in Grand Rapids, Michigan in June.
