Hello, my name is Charles Sawadogo, owner and founder of AFRIGATESUSA. I was born and raised in Africa, and have travelled extensively throughout that continent while working in several different business industries.
My business experience started as a commercial manager in Burkina Faso, West Africa, selling and maintaining electronic equipment for offices. Later, I became an assistant manager at Loring Labs Inc, a Canadian mining company in West Africa. I also worked in logistics for Tiehpo Resources in Liberia, and ended my work experience in Africa working as socio-ethnologist for Japan International Cooperation Agency in West and Central Africa.
In 2005 I moved to the United States and became a US citizen, and graduated from the University of Phoenix with a degree in business administration, and also with a diploma in Electro-optics from the US Army Ordnance School in Virginia.
