WILL TO WIN… Igniting the entrepreneurial passion within
The true entrepreneurial spirit was apparent within Willie even in his teenage years. At 16, attending the final 2 years in secondary school in Lundu, a seaside town 70km away from Kuching, Willie teamed up with his brother to run mini-markets, selling food supplies and stationary to villages, schools and government tenders who lacked access to the city.
