My journey as an entrepreneur hasn’t been easy and rosy. Having lost my job due to downsizing, I had to think of something to do in other to support my husband financially as his income wouldn’t be enough to carter for our family needs. I started hawking cooked food in offices as to contribute to my family. I did this for two years (2018-2020) before the coronavirus forced many businesses to stop including mine. I was asked not to come into the company’s premises to hawk food again. I was out of business for a while until a friend encouraged me to go register my business and be investment ready. She told me of opportunities I could benefit from if my business was properly registered. So I used that period to attend a 6 months training programme in a proper catering and events management school, after my training, I registered my business and commenced full operations towards the end of 2021.

I am no longer hawking, but now I have a shop and once in a while I offer free training and mentorship to women interested in venturing into the catering industry. I must add that there were times I felt like giving up especially having to joggle between being a wife, pregnancies (I had 2 children these periods in 2019 and 2020) and business. By God’s grace I’m still in business and pushing.
