Agnes Kagure Businesses
Agnes started her career as a house help in Nairobi before scrapping her way into insurance, which opened her way to not only making money but also a big name in the industry.
Mrs Agnes Kagure, who was voted best insurance salesperson for three years in a row by the Association of Kenya Insurers, was brought to the city from her home in Nyeri in 1995 by a relative, her aunt, before her luck met opportunity.
While at her aunt’s, she saw a newspaper ad for insurance sales people which she applied. While the job advert put the age limit at 25 Kagure, then 20, went ahead and applied and convinced the panel she had what it takes.
She started her life earning commissions and staying in Ruiru. She then moved to Mathare North and later to Dandora. When she got married, she shifted to her husband’s house in Umoja then later to Kitengela.
Mrs Kagure, 47, defied odds to rise to the top of the game, ending up owning an insurance agency, Insurance Consulting Group (ICG). In 1999, she was promoted to unit manager, where she recruited trained and managed agents.
