Desire draws his inspiration from his former employer “Mr. Phillip Mataranyika of Nyaradzo Funeral Services is my role model, he always inspired me, I was so motivated by how he would manage his things in such a big organization and never failed and I told myself I was going to be that kind of a person one day. Seeing the brand growing each year, managing the fleet, nurturing employees with good remuneration, Mr Mataranyika marked a huge space in my ambitions, I had always had a dream of becoming a good entrepreneur, it became true and I want to thank him so much for grooming me for more than ten years,
I would not have achieved anything had it not been the courage and strength I had I would like to honor myself for taking the bold decision of starting my own business, I believe everything is possible if you give your time and always follow what a good leader is putting out and letting you see”.
