A Look at Sajwani and his Early Life

In the end, however, Sajwani pursued a different career path in which, he dedicated tremendous time and resources to develop. He enrolled in medical school at Baghdad, but before completing the coursework, Sajwani resorted to relocate to America and pursue economics at the Washington University. Well, he succeeded as he graduated top of the class and was lucky to get an employment opportunity in GASCO.

While working in GASCO, Sajwani fostered excellent work relations coupled with tremendous input from the board of directors. As such, he was able to dispense his services as the credit management officer. Seeing that he was good at what he did, he managed to explore a personal business idea in which, he invested after quitting GASCO.

Food Catering Business

Sajwani invested the savings he had accumulated from GASCO in a food catering business. This business assisted him to elevate his brand across the Middle East as he managed to cater to more than 12,000 clients per day. Looking at these figures, it is evident that Sajwani started churning millions from a relatively tender age compared to his peers. Because his food catering business was tremendously successful, he decided to start a real estate company that has since then, earned him a stellar reputation.
