Women of the UAE: Sandi Saksena

Straight-talking Sandi Saksena believes women in the UAE must become more financially empowered.

ABU DHABI // Sandi Saksena did not intend to become a financial expert.

It was 1996, she was happy as a housewife until her husband Amar became ill and she was forced to find a job.

She had no formal training in the financial world, but was determined and, after many rejections, landed a job at an insurance company.
