Fazal Hasham Jivraj (1867-1925) – Mogadishu, Somalia


Fazal Hasham Jivraj was born in Kera, Kutch, India in 1867. A firm intention of an overseas adventure, led him to travel by dhow to Zanzibar at the age of 13. After a year-long stay in Zanzibar, he travelled to Mogadishu where he worked for 5 years at Haji Khatau who was originally from Mandvi, Kutch. Impressed by the astuteness, dedication and sincerity of Fazalbhai, Rashid Kanji Rajpar of Zanzibar employed Fazalbhai as a manager of his newly opened Mogadishu branch. His business at Merca was being managed by Jaffer Gangji. After a few years, Fazalbhai’s hard work made him famous and his employer finally appointed him as General Manager for all his branches in Somalia.
 
In spite of his being engrossed in business, Fazalbhai felt his responsibility to the other family members who still lived in India. He arranged for travel of his brothers Abdulla and Mohamed from India to Mogadishu. When they arrived, he opened a business for them under the name of Haji Abdulla. He continued working for his employer with utmost devotion until 1911 when he resigned. In 1912, he joined his brothers and opened a new company “Fratelli Hasham”, Italian for “Hasham Brothers”. With the grace of Allah (SWT), the new business grew up very fast and prospered very well.
