Entrepreneurship unlocks a new and exciting journey....
"The tools of your future lay in your hands, grab the wheel and start the engine. You might not know how to get there, you may not have all the answers and that is okay. The mistakes along the way are going to be the bricks to build the foundation of your business. People will doubt you, and sometimes you will doubt yourself but it will all be worthwhile in the ‘never-ending’ end. Entrepreneurship is like a destination that unlocks a new and more exciting journey."
- Mariana Agness Francisco Eria is a 26 year old entrepreneur who studied Business Management at the University Of Saint Thomas of Mozambique’s Business School. With experiences gained in public relations, customer management, and a former blogger with focus on Women Empowerment, she founded The House Of Agness in 2015 and officially opened her first Floral Studio on 22nd June 2017 in the heart of Maputo. In her own words, the business idea emerged out of the curiosity and desire to create a differentiated product and service, focusing primarily on the floral industry. What makes The House Of Agness’s floral arrangements different are the personalised flower boxes that come in different shapes, forms and textures. One of the main goals is to generate more jobs. From a “one-woman” show, the company currently employs 5 people.
