Tell us About yourself
My name is Happiness, I am from Imo state but my husband is from Rivers State. I am a hair stylist by profession.
What do you do for a living?
Before now I was a hair stylist but due to lack of finance I couldn’t continue with my saloon, so I went into selling fry yam, potato and fish, which is my present source of income.
Can you tell us about your business?
I love my business a lot, it is a very good business. There’s nothing like what give you money on daily basis. With this business I don’t lack money, people will always buy either the yam or the fish.
Can you point out anything you’ve achieved with this business?
I trained my son who just finished his Youth Service with this business. I paid his fees from his year 1 to final year with frying this yam. The business has helped me solve some little challenges. I don’t depend on any man for my needs to be meant, the business has been so helpful to me in many ways.
Lastly, what is your advise to women out there.
My advise to every woman is to look for something to do, stop staying idle, do something no matter how small, Don’t just be a full house wife.
