Founder Bizzoly Holding
“When you educate girls, you educate a country” This is the credo of this Congolese woman, a fervent activist for the women’s cause, who maintains that little dreamers become visionary women! As a child, already an entrepreneur, she baked pastries and made dresses for sale, and opened a business selling advertising postcards. At the end of her studies, she co-founded EXP-Comunicard, one of the first marketing agencies in sub-Saharan Africa. She then became involved in the cause of women. She created a micro-credit system called “Femmes d’Avenir” (Women of the Future), the magazine International Working Lady and the Kinshasa Rose Foundation (to support the fight against breast cancer in the DRC). Since 2013, Patricia Nzolantima has represented Congo in the Young Entrepreneurs’ Alliance at the G20 summit. In May 2016, she published “Caravane des Portraits*”, a book in praise of the women whose work is helping to create the Africa of tomorrow.
She joined our network of Ambassadors in 2017.
