African Dream: Charles Ananaba

In Liberia, a country where security has been a big issue after years of conflict, Charles Ananaba's Omega Insurance Company has struck gold.

On the firm's website, they claim that they are the West African country's fastest growing underwriter.

Omega has been in operation since 2007, but Mr Ananaba has been in the insurance business for the last 20 years.

Before founding Omega, he was involved in another insurance venture, Delta Holdings, which weathered the storms during Liberia's civil war.

He told the BBC's African Dream series what has kept him going.
