I am from a family of farmers in Guyana, South Africa. I grew up tilling the land and tending to animals. Due to my father’s desire to give us a better life, he started a small grocery shop. The whole family pitched in the operations of our small store. Before long, I found myself handling the inventory, ordering system and assisted in the bookkeeping.
