A Kenyan-born woman living in the United States could not hide her joy after finally fulfilling her dream of opening her own business.
On Monday, Priscah Norton opened a café christened “Coffee 4 All” in Stoughton, a city in Dane County, Wisconsin, in what she described as a dream come true.
“It’s been a journey. Because I remember a voice which was always telling me ‘you need to venture into business.'” Norton told WKOW 27 News.
Norton, who became an American citizen more than 15 years ago, says she found a perfect location for her café through the Facebook marketplace.

She opened the business as a tribute to her late husband Ray Norton, who passed away in December last year after a battle with a rare disease known as scleroderma.
“Though my husband’s condition was so bad, the business spirit was in him. He did even some interviews last year for employees when he was laying in his bed,” Norton added.
Even though her husband was not there to witness the opening of her new business, Norton believes he will be watching down on her as she begins the new journey.
“I did what nobody would have believed, nobody believed that I could make it. But I did it. Yes, I am sad, but I am excited that through my pain, through my struggles, Coffee 4 All was born,” she added.
