To increase access to 100 young females to entrepreneurial skills, financial and business management and other technical support services for take-off to enhance self-reliance towards alleviating poverty, we held the sixth batch of the entrepreneurship skills training for out-of-school young girls between the ages of 15 and 25 to empower them economically thus reducing the level of exploitation and its attendant consequences.
Soon after the six months training on fish farming, Glory (one of the most outstanding beneficiaries) started her fish pond behind her father’s compound to assist her parents raise funds for her school.
With her parents support, she was able to start up her farm with three thousand (3,000) fingerlings in which she was able to make enough money for the upkeep of the family and her education. Her profits has moved from #25,000 to 40,000 as she does not only sell within her neighbourhood but market, restaurants and she does home delivery to her customers.
Glory has not regretted being a part of the skills training and having to start up the business. According to her, the only challenge is the mortality rate which she has put in measures to tackle the challenge. She encouraged other young female to take part in the GPI entrepreneurship training and take it seriously. Glory is a university undergraduate whose part of her education fund is from her fish farm business.
