Born in Madira village, Sabatia constituency in Vihiga County, Margaret went to the US alongside her husband. But forty years later, she has made a name for herself as an established entrepreneur in Atlanta downtown, Georgia.

Margaret says her journey to America was very long even though she had stayed in Europe for a year prior to her trip to the US, all thanks to her husband.
