Benin Mwangi

My name is Benin. I began going to Africa during my economics undergraduate study. Currently, I am a credit analyst by profession, however my personal interests are in economic development and public policy-particularly with respect to Africa. This site is about the who, when, how, and why of doing business in Africa. My belief is that more trade could in Africa would greatly complement the aid that the continent already receives.

In addition to blogging at beninmwangi.com I also blog at The Benin Epilogue: Africa Ready for Business
