My desire to help small vendors, artisans and to give the majority of the people a voice in the global market has driven me to levels I never thought i will reach.

    When my Story was published, I began to seriously consider myself the Bitcoin missionary to Botswana, and with the support of my husband I spent sleepless nights updating my facebook page with knowledge, videos and responding to all kinds of messages.

    I have grown to be known as the Bitcoinlady of Botswana and a FB page called 'bitcrazy', which grew to more than 500 members with some very active members from Botswana, who are keen to see Bitcoin being used for trade in this country. The Bitcoin community has been supportive with information and I have not stopped since. I have recently registered a company called Satoshicenter Pty Ltd and my intention is to run Satoshi as a home for all things Bitcoin-related, from giving Education to the people to selling any Bitcoin related products and a center to connect Bitcoiners in Botswana.
