Suzie Wokabi is the founder of SuzieBeauty Cosmetics, one of the first Kenyan makeup artists to start her own line of cosmetics including foundations, lipsticks, concealers, eyeshadows, eyeliners, makeup brushes etc.
For the mother of two, the entrepreneurship journey was not easy as she could not find investors to help make her dream come true.
However, her big break came in 2012 when she found two Indian investment groups willing to give her funding as well as Chase Bank who offered her a significant amount of money.
With funding, SuzieBeauty Cosmetics was on its way to the top, quickly cementing itself as one of the top local beauty lines. Ever since she registered the company, Wokabi juggled the roles of being the CEO, handling the PR and marketing as well as the creative aspect of the business. Years later, the thriving business would then be sold to Flame Tree Group which took up ownership of the brand as well as the cosmetics line.
