Retired World Banker displays entrepreneurial skills

If you have faith in the World Bank, you may like to reconsider.

When Linda Corsiga retired in 1999 from the International Finance Corp, the private sector arm of the World Bank Group, she took a beekeeping course in the Philippines and set up a “a honeybee farm with a total of 45 Australian honeybees ” [sic] to work coconut palms.

The report continued:
Unfortunately, because she was not a hands-on beekeeper, all her honeybees died, along with her investments.
She then turned to organic coconut vinegar making, saying “I lived in the world of vinegar” (a reference to the family business rather than the World Bank office culture).
