Hussain Sajwani: Growing His Food and Real Estate Business

Hussain Sajwani is one of the most hardworking billionaires in the history of the United Arab Emirates. The country only has produced five billionaires, and Hussain Sajwani is one of them. As a child, he has always dreamed of becoming a wealthy and successful businessman someday. He convinced his parents that living and studying abroad would make it possible, and when he reached college, he decided to live and study in the state of Washington where he would be earning his college diploma. After his stay in the United States, he decided to go back to the United Arab Emirates and joined a company called GASCO. He worked as a private contracts manager, but he realized that it was not the life that he wanted to have. He quit his job at GASCO and decided to establish his own business.

In the 1980s, Hussain Sajwani decided to build a cafeteria. His food business serves the American soldiers who are stationed in the United Arab Emirates and the employees and engineers at a firm called Bechtel. Since his business is food service, he noticed that a lot of customers are coming into his establishment ordering the food that he made. Over time, the influx of customers inside his cafeteria gave him his first million. Hussain Sajwani invested what he earned from the cafeteria into another line of business, and in 2002, he founded the DAMAC Properties.

As the DAMAC owner, he decided to involve himself in some projects all across the Arabian Peninsula. The DAMAC Properties is responsible for the construction of residential buildings, office towers, recreational areas, retail centers, and hotels all across the United Arab Emirates and the neighboring Gulf States. Over time, the DAMAC Properties became one of the most successful businesses in the country, and it made him his first billion. The net worth of Hussain Sajwani climbed up because of the new business that he established, and after he became a billionaire, he met several business people who will be working with him as a partner, including the current president of the United States, Donald Trump.
