Of Africa’s 10 Richest Women, 5 Are Black

Written by Dana Sanchez

Just two African women showed up on Forbes’ list of 50 richest Africans for 2015, so Destiny Connect went searching for wealthy African women who may have slipped under the radar.

When it comes to big money, men still call the shots in Africa – just like in the rest of the world, Forbes says.

These 10 African women can lay claim to fortunes of $32 million or more. Some use their wealth and influence to create jobs or raise the standard of living for low-income Africans.

Of Africa’s 10 richest women listed here, 5 are black.
