Malini Saba is truly one of the best success stories that there is. The way she has lived her life so far almost seems like it should be right out of the pages of a fairy tale. She went from a very poor country to becoming an extremely successful businesswoman and philanthropist, and her name is known worldwide for her exploits.
Malini was born on the island nation of Sir Lanka and moved to the United States at the age of 19. She did not really know what she wanted to do at the time, but she new that her education was first and foremost. As she was studying, she became deeply interested in the world of business. She found investments extremely interesting in particular. She pursued this field and would go out to investment firms in her spare time and ask them about their strategies and what makes their businesses work. She even tried to join several venture capital firms, getting turned down because she was apparently not venture capitalist material. Well, Malini destroyed all expectation when she created her own firm called Saban.
Saban now owns investments in several different industry sectors and commodities. It is extremely successful and has investments all over the world. Even with a few bouts of corruption trying to shut her down, Malini kept going and building her business. Her strategy was bold and extremely risky. She wanted to invest where others refused to, finding those investments to be way to risky for their liking. She also invests in countries that are deemed to risky to touch for most investors. She has said many times that she does not care what the trends are or what is good right now, she wants to be involved in what will be a good investment in the future.
Just adding to this fairy tale is the fact that Malini is also a very generous philanthropist. She has given out millions of dollars to causes that are dear to her. She also created her own nonprofit organization that is focused on helping women called Stree. This organization helps women all across Asia, Africa, and Europe get healthcare, help with legal matters, and training in business and entrepreneurship. Malini believes that all women have a right to get the chances that she had, and she knows firsthand how debilitating poverty can be. But with a little help, anybody can be anything that they want.
