INTERVIEW WITH HALIMA ABBA : VISIONARY 101

C.E.O; MALABIS LINGERIES

HALIMA ABBA, (C.E.O) MALABIS LINGERIES)
“ I had to sell my jewelries and even added the money for my car into the business”

Q: Tell me all about malabis lingerie
A: The concept of malabis lingerie is getting the right fit and providing quality lingerie and meet up with the international standards.
Q: How did you get into lingerie?
A: Growing up my mum had a sewing machine and was into fashion designing, I use to play around it a lot that was how I learnt how to sew. Studying biochemistry was not my first choice, I worked for a year after youth service and that was when I knew that working for someone wasn’t for me, so I thought what I will do that after 20 years it would have grown, it’s tangible and it’s something that people will appreciate. I have always loved lingerie and getting the right fit was a problem for me as well, so I was like why not start one of your own.
Q: Tell me about your passion for lingerie.
A: creating something from scratch and somebody appreciates it and actually tell you ‘thank you’ for it gives me joy.
Q: Did you have any opposition going into this business
A: Not really, my parents are open minded and very supportive especially my dad.
Q: What kind of encouragement have you gotten in terms of funding in your business?
A: Initially when I started no body was interested so I used my savings and made a lot of sacrifices and am still making sacrifices like my factory is in my house.
