Devine Collections CEO Mercy Maluli gifted herself a white Mercedes G-Wagon to celebrate her 33rd birthday.
In a video posted on her Instagram account, Maluli is seen upgrading from her old Mercedes to the new beast. She said buying herself the machine is something she always wanted and prayed for it.
While her dream was to acquire it on her 40th birthday, Maluli expressed gratitude that her dream was actualized seven years earlier.
“God did. From glory to glory. For everything comes from him and exists by his power and is intended for his glory. All glory to him for exceeding my expectations this year.
It is something I really wanted to do for myself on my 40th birthday, but the gift came seven years earlier,” she said.
The mother of two disclosed the new beast cost Sh 20 million. Maluli also made headlines in September 2021 after gifting her son Brayden a multimillion palatial house on his sixth birthday.
“He has been praying for a house cause Mommy promised one. God answered, and he is the newest homeowner in town! Anything for my boys. To brighter days ahead,” she posted on Instagram.
She boasts as one of the most successful businesswomen in the country, with tales of hard work, resilience, and determination. Reports have it that Maluli began entrepreneurship while still in school.
She started selling Mitumba clothes while a student at Amboseli Institute when she was studying community development and social work.
After completing her studies in 2013, she did not seek employment as her business was doing well. She started selling men’s wear and accessories at her shop in Ngara using the profits she got from the Mitumba business and a loan from Equity Bank.
Maluli settled on men’s wear as it had minimal competition since many shops specialized in women’s clothes. She would source the clothes in neighboring Uganda but later upgraded to Italy, Turkey, and China as she was more concerned about quality.
Besides dressing men, her company which operates under the name Devine Collection also offers personal shopping for families. It has several branches in Moi Avenue, Lavington, and Kilimani.
