Dolapo Aiyegoro, a Project Manager within Profica’s Nigerian team, is another of our sterling ladies who we interviewed for our Women's Month series. Dolapo is a qualified civil engineer which means that from the get-go she has been working alongside colleagues who have been predominantly male. She takes this in her stride.
As we near the end of Profica’s Women's Month series, we chat to accountant at head office, Miranda Smous. This ‘fearless female’ hails from the defence force, no less, and brings with her a gritty determination and strong work ethic.

Profica is proud to be a sponsor of Zamreal 2018, the one-day forum which brings together local and regional stakeholders to gain knowledge and share insights on the Zambian real estate market.
Beukes van Heerden, Associate Director at Profica, and Akazhila Mambwe, Senior Project Manager based in Zambia, are both attending the forum today and report that the Zambian real estate market presents a combination of exciting opportunities and challenges. Challenges include the fact that banks are limited to the amount of exposure they may engage with in terms of a single client, which can complicate large-scale project finance. The market is beset with high interest rates that vary between 18% and 22% for geared finance. This is effectively curbing many development prospects.
It’s time to celebrate new female faces at Profica who have joined a group of skilled women trailblazing across the African continent. We chat to Project Manager and Tenant Co-ordinator Clotilde Eteme.
