Starting a business in such uncertain times leaving a secure government job sounded ridiculous to many. Samrawit Moges had just begun a family and her children were little. She couldn't have picked a worse time for an entrepreneurial adventure. Against all odds, she became one of the pioneers in the tourism sector and thrived as a business icon.
