Who is a Social Entrepreneur

Who are social entrepreneurs?

Social entrepreneurs are people who drive social innovation and transformation in various fields including education, health, environment and enterprise development. They pursue poverty alleviation goals with entrepreneurial zeal, business methods and the courage to innovate and overcome traditional practices.

Social entrepreneurs are individuals with innovative solutions to society’s most pressing social problems. They are often ambitious and persistent, tackling major social issues and offering new ideas for wide-scale change. One of such is Professor Muhammad Yunus, the Founder of Grameen Bank, in Bangldesh

Muhammad Yunus

Muhammad Yunus was born on 28th of June, 1940 in the village of Bathua , Bangladesh. He was the 3rd of 14 children of whom five died in infancy. His father was a successful goldsmith, but his biggest influence was his mother , who always helped the poor people. This inspired him to commit himself to eradication of poverty.

This opportunity came in 1974, when Professor Muhammad Yunus led his students on a field trip to a poor village and discovered that some poor people operate their businesses through borrowed money and on paying back this money with interests, they are left with no profit. This made him to take matters into his own hands and from his own pocket lent some money to basket weavers in that village.

The Grameen Bank

Against the advice of banks and government, Yunus carried on giving out ‘micro-loans’, and in 1983 formed the Grameen Bank, meaning ‘village bank’ founded on principles of trust and solidarity. The Grameen Bank in Bangladesh in 1983, due to Yunus’ belief that credit is a fundamental human right. His objective was to help poor people escape from poverty by providing loans on terms suitable to them and by teaching them a few sound financial principles so they could help themselves.

In Bangladesh today, Grameen has 2,564 branches, with 19,800 staff serving 8.29 million borrowers in 81,367 villages. On any working day Grameen collects an average of $1.5 million in weekly installments. Of the borrowers, 97% are women and over 97% of the loans are paid back, a recovery rate higher than any other banking system.

Today, the Grameen Bank has advanced to the forefront of a burgeoning world movement toward eradicating poverty through microlending and replicas of its model now operate in more than 100 countries worldwide, including the US, Canada, France, The Netherlands and Norway.

What is Social Entrepreneurship

Happy new week in a relatively new month. How have you been ladies and gentle men. I know I neither been uploading nor sharing blog posts this year. Well, let me say that will be solved with this year as i will be focusing on business ventures and healthy living write ups on my blog in 2016. These are two of what I am passionate about and I hope you learn a lot as I share my passion wit you this year.

Today, I will be sharing information on social entrepreneurship. So, what is social entrepreneurship?

Social entrepreneurship is said to be attracting growing amounts of talent, money, and attention. But along with its increasing popularity has come less certainty about what exactly a social entrepreneurship is and what social entrepreneurs do. As a result, all sorts of activities are now being called social entrepreneurship

Though there is no specific definition for this field of endeavour, it is widely known as a means to drive social change, and it is that potential payoff, with its lasting, transformational benefit to society, that sets the social entrepreneurship and its practitioners apart.

On this site, social entrepreneurship is defined as the practice of combining innovation, resourcefulness and opportunity to address critical social and environmental challenges.

Social Entrepreneurship matters because it helps generate social value and social change and serves as the activity of identifying novel and unique ways of addressing pressing social need like homelessness, unemployment, waste management. On Wednesday, I will be sharing more information on who a social entrepreneurs is. Kindly read and share amongst loved ones.

This is an excerpt from my radio show, #GreatMindswithKeny, which is aired very Monday from 1pm to 1.30pm Nigerian time. You can tune in to learn more. Have a lovely week ahead. Cheers!

Cold Pressed Castor Oil

Hello, it has been such as long time I posted here. Though, I do post on my facebook page. Over time, I have discovered that many people, particularly ladies, are not aware of the various health benefits of castor oil. 

There are different types of castor oil, such as black castor oil, hydrogenated castor oil and castor oil granules. However, I will focus on the cold pressed castor oil for this blog post.

I am writing on this type of castor oil because it is considered to be the oil with the greatest concentration of nutrients. If you want to learn more about cold pressed castor oil, read on.

Cold pressed castor Oil is a very pale yellow liquid that is extracted from castor seeds (Ricinus Communis). Castor seeds have been found in Egyptian tombs dating back to 4000 BC. Although the castor plant is indigenous to the southeastern Mediterranean Basin, Eastern Africa, and India, today it is widespread throughout tropical regions such as Jamaica.

Owing to its valuable nutrients, it is now used for skin problems, such as burns, sunburns, skin disorders, skin cuts, and abrasions. Thus, it is an excellent choice for maintaining beautiful and healthy skin and hair.

Subsequently, I will be discussing the benefits of cold pressed castor oil on our hair and skin as well as the best ways to apply them. Have a lovely Christmas celebration ahead.

Misty Copeland, the First African-American Principal Ballerina

Good day everyone, how are you today? I have not written for a long time because I have been busy working on successfully creating my natural beauty product line (which I have successfully formulated and will discuss in another blog post).
However, the desire to encourage people to live beyond their present situation has brought me back to blogging. This time, I wrote about Misty Danielle Copeland, the first African-American performer, who was appointed as a principal dancer for American Ballet Theatre (typically considered the best company for classical ballet in America) in June, 2015.
The reason I decided to write about her is because she has surmounted different hurdles in life to get to where she is today. Oftentimes, we have challenges and life hardly goes the way we want it. But it is our duty to make the best of the available opportunities or challenges we have.
Kindly read about this wonderful, multi-talented African-American ballet dancer and get inspired to do that which you think is impossible.


Misty Copeland was born September 10, 1982 in Kansas City, Missouri, U.S.A. She and her siblings grew up with a single mother, whose several failed marriages resulted in financial instability. This led to Misty, her and her five siblings living in a two-room motel suite, in San Pedro.

Dancing Talent

Misty, a new balerina at age 13
As a young child, Misty moved with her family from Kansas City to San Pedro, California, where she had her first formal encounter with dance. Her middle school team’s coach noticed her talent and recommended that she attended ballet classes taught by Cynthia Bradley at the local Boys & Girls Club. This marks the beginning of her ballet studies at the age of 13, which is too late to start learning ballet because many professional ballet dancers begin their training around the age of three.

Over time, Misty’s natural ability was quickly recognized by Cynthia, who made Misty move in with her, her husband and their young son to help her focus more on ballet. She did this when Misty’s family moved to a one-room motel.

Ballet Career and Awards

In 1998, at age 15, Misty won first prize in the ballet category of the Los Angeles Music Center Spotlight Awards. That summer, she was accepted with a full scholarship into the intensive summer program at the San Francisco Ballet.
In 2000, she won another full scholarship, to the ABT’s intensive summer program. That year, she was also named the ABT’s National Coca-Cola Scholar. At the end of that summer, she was invited to join the ABT studio company, a selective program for young dancers still in training. Soon after, she became a member of the ABT’s corps de ballet in 2001, as the only African American woman in a group of 80 dancers.
In 2007 she became the company’s first African American female soloist in two decades. Some of Misty’s notable performances include the title role in The Firebird (2012), Gulnare in Le Corsaire (2013), Swanilda in CoppĂ©lia (2014), and the dual lead role, Odette/Odile, in Swan Lake (2014).

More Awards

In 2008, Misty received the 2008 Leonore Annenberg Fellowship in the Arts and was named National Youth of the Year Ambassador for the Boys & Girls Clubs of America in 2013. In 2014, President Obama appointed her to the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition.
In addition, she won the 2014 Dance Magazine Award and was recently named one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in 2015, a rare feat for someone from the dance world.
On June 30, 2015, Misty became the first African-American woman to be promoted to principal dancer in ABT's 75-year history. Thus, Misty is considered a prodigy because she rose to stardom despite not starting ballet until the age of 13.

Ballet Challenges

In the ballet world, racism and discrimination continued and throughout most of the 20th century, African-Americans were largely barred from quality training and professional careers.
Though Misty is the first African-American ballerina to attain the rank of principal dancer with the historically white A.B.T., she is not the first African-American professional ballerina. In fact, there have been African-American ballerinas such as Janet Collins, who danced with the Metropolitan Opera House in the early 1950s; Raven Wilkinson, who joined the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo in 1955; Nora Kimball, one of the first African-American soloists (a rank below principal) with A.B.T.; and the legendary Virginia Johnson of the Dance Theater of Harlem.
As regards Raven Wilkinson, Ballet Russe reportedly told her and her family that they were not to let the public know that she was actually black. So onstage, she was often required to “white up,” masking her in pale pancake makeup.
Also, many black ballet dancers, including Wilkinson, were encouraged to concentrate on “African dance,” or maybe modern dance or musical theatre even if they had spent years training in classical ballet. However, Misty anomalously broke that standard because her presence challenges the traditional conventions of ballet.


Misty has had endorsements with companies such as Coach (leather accessories) and Under Armour (athletic wear). In addition to her dance career, she has endorsed products and companies such as T-Mobile, Dr Pepper and Under Armour. Picture)
Thus, Olympic gold medal gymnast Nadia Comaneci wrote in Time that Copeland's story was one "of someone who followed her dreams and refused to give up. She added that "It doesn't matter where you're from. If you have the passion like Misty, you can be the best at what you do."

Greatness lies in our contribution to calling men and women back to God, in solving life's problems and in making this world a better place. True greatness lies in pulling men and women off the way to hell and getting them qualified for heaven's eternal glory - Francis Wale Oke
