Elsie is a businesswoman who sells women’s and kids’ outfits in Tanzania.
She is a single mother with beards.
Reports say the beard is reason why men don’t want to approach her.
The young woman is said to have inherited the beards, and she revealed that some of her sisters also have facial hair.
“I accepted myself because it’s natural. I was given it by God. But there are a lot of challenges that I do face. Some people think I am transgender, but I would like to clarify that I am a woman.
“I have been blessed with one daughter, and I am just okay. Many people wonder when they see me because I look different, but I am just like any other woman. Men fear me, and they go around asking my friends if I am a real woman or transgender,” she said.
