Anta Babacar Ngom is a Senegalese entrepreneur who runs one of the biggest poultry production companies in Africa. She is the Chief Executive Officer of Sedima, Senegal’s major poultry production group, where she oversees production, distribution, and company development.
With two master’s degrees and working experience with a multinational corporation, Anta was surprised when her dad, then the General-Manager, sent her to the farm to learn the basics of raising chickens.
“I was really convinced I was getting an office job,” Anta Babacar told the International Finance Cooperation. “I had an MBA, a master’s degree, I knew the business, was born with the chickens. What else he could ask for?”
