After many years of celebrating the diaspora and interviewing prominent diasporans, we have decided to set up the Diaspora Transition. The Diaspora Transition Network is a membership-based network for African Diasporans and returnees of various heritage currently residing in Ghana. This network will be a community for information sharing, skills exchange, cultural awareness, and a space for doing and discussing business. The Network will consist of quarterly meetings and social events to build a community of like-minded professionals. To be part of this initiative,

Yasmin Afrifa is the co-founder & chief executive officer of Kleenit Ghana Limited. She has about 5 years of experience working as a pension analyst & insurance analyst in the Uk before transitioning to Ghana to start her business.
Yasmin was born in the Uk and raised in the Uk until her family moved to Ghana for a few years before relocating back to London. She studied Chemical Engineering at the University of Bradford and holds both a bachelor’s & master’s in Chemical Engineering. After university, she got employed at Fidelity Investments where she worked as a pension analyst for about 2 years before joining AIG as an insurance analyst/underwriter.
In 2018, she got married in Ghana and decided she wanted to move to Ghana. Her excitement to move to Ghana was even more fueled after attending the annual TDT organized by Guba in 2019 & she was inspired more than ever this was the right decision for her after listening to a few people talk about their move to Ghana. She prepared to move & finally relocated to Ghana in August 2019.
Before relocating, she got an offer with a bank in Ghana so she knew she had a backup plan but she got to Ghana communicated stalled with the bank. Yasmin decided to start her own business and she looked at what she enjoyed and how she could add value to it. Since she enjoyed cleaning & with the support of family & friends, she decided to start a cleaning company called Kleenit Ghana Limited in September.
Kleenit provides both residential & commercial cleaning & fumigation services. Some of our top clientele include Palace Mall, Vertex Properties & Interior, Ghana Wildlife, Ghana Armed Forces, Cedar Mountain Chapel, just to name a few. We currently have 35 employees who work for the organization in the space of almost 2 years.
Yasmin is a big fan of music(particularly Sarkodie & Kidi) and she enjoys learning to constantly improve herself.
SHE SAID ‘If I had followed what most people said about my decision to relocate to Ghana, I would have stayed in the Uk & perhaps not be a blessing to my 20 employees that I have now.. Discover what you are good at & allow God to use you to be a blessing to your company, employer, employees, etc. One day I will share my story and hopefully encourage someone out there just as @dentaa_show did in my life. Let’s learn to always seek God’s direction in everything we do. Even though friends & family may have your best interest at heart, their advice may not be the best for you in that situation.
