As one of Fortune Magazine's "Most Promising Entrepreneurs" Leila Janah
(This feature is from 2018, so a bit older, yet I wanted to share what I believe is worth your time to listen to....what she has done to help so many. At a time when the greed is good crowd is at an all-time high, women like Leila keep hope alive. Maybe you'll agree.)
As one of Fortune Magazines Most Promising Entrepreneurs Leila Janah started a non-profit with $14,000. Her goal to reduce global poverty by putting people into jobs where they could earn a living wage led to Samasource. In San Francisco at the Samovar Tea House, she shares why healthy food is the fuel she needs to continue her mission of ending world poverty.
