Owner and Founder, Sonder Restaurant
You have to be stubborn when you have a goal. We have a very masculine society, so they underestimate your potential. I had problems with men not wanting to work here because they didn't want to have a woman as a boss, or to do things for a place that mostly employed women. It was a very beautiful thing to challenge.
Agnesa Geca opened Sonder Restaurant in Prishtina with two goals in mind. The first, to provide a comfortable and cozy environment for people to come for a bagel or a coffee. The second, was to provide employment opportunities for women who hadn’t held previous jobs. Now, she uses the restaurant as an outlet for her creative culinary side, but also as a training program for women in Prishtina seeking economic independence and stability.
