Cursory: Without any hesitation, a young lady followed through with an idea she had while laying on her bed in school three years ago. Today, that idea she executed with her Varsity school fees at that time has blossomed into something lucrative and employs labour.
A Nigerian lady has taken to social media to showcase her fine workplace three years after she started a business with her school fees.
The Lagos State University graduate recalled how she lay on her bed in school one day and had an idea to start up an Ewa Agoyin business.
Ewa Agoyin is a very popular street food, especially on Lagos streets in Nigeria. This delicious meal is usually accompanied by a spicy stew. The stew is a spicy sauce made with dried tatashe, chili pepper, and lot of onions.
The young entrepreneur described her business journey as a very daunting one.
According to her some challenges she faced while setting up her new workplace include bad road, touts disturbances, and security.
Her tweet partly reads:
“3 years ago I laid on the student bed , unsure of what the future holds, an idea came to my head and immediately took my school fee to commence it.
“This day, 3years later, this is how far that has brought us.
“This project is the toughest I have ever had to do
“When we opened this place January last year, I knew it was just a stepping stone.
“The security was horrible, the staff were constantly running from bottles once in every 2weeks
“The light was horrible, we spent on fuel daily Water was inconsistent but we managed through.
“When the security situation of the previous place got serious, I had to get look for somewhere else before I will receive a call that they have broken bottle on a staff or dispatch rider head.
“But I’m grateful to God, throughout the tough 1year we spent at the location my people were kept safe.
“Why we got the new place, there was so much to be fixed that one could say I was building a new house. This new place cost me an arm and leg Omo onile people were on my neck, Lagos state , community. Everybody just wanted to eat.
“I was drained so much that I started wishing I had just stayed at the old place irrespective of the safety. I had to deal with troubles from every angle , down to artisans, the artisans showed me pepper and I am not even out of the pepper yet.
“Entrepreneurship is tough!“
