The Nine Richest Women in Africa and What They Do as Millionaires

These successful African women each possess  a net worth of over $30,000,000 (USD) each.

The list is a compilation from recent recognition awards lists and profiles published from 2011 and 2012. The wealthiest women in the group of 9 are significantly more wealthy than the number 10 person, whose net worth is “only” $16,100,000 as of February 2012.

Number One is Wendy Appelbaum, with a net worth in early 2012 1.99 Billion African Rand or 259.3 Million USD. That’s $259,300,000. Her net worth has been amassed through a family trust, the Gordon Family Trust, but she has worked hard in a number of ventures. All of the women on this list have worked in businesses, some as difficult as mining. Most are located in South Africa.
