Sylvia Banda knows the secret to success and has turned her passion for food and cooking into one of the strongest food service corporations in the African Republic of Zambia. She started by making fritters to sell to her classmates, then opened her own restaurant after college. On opening day, she realized there was more to running a food business than just cooking. She had forgotten to have chairs for her customers, and she had to barter with a neighbor for chairs. She has become a successful food entrepreneur who's helping other Zambians improve their lives. Changes in economic policies made the difference for Sylvia and other Zambians.
