GPI Enterpreneurship Skills Training - beneficiary tells her Story

Girls Power Initiative provided grants in the form of equipment and shop rents to up to six graduates of her six-month entrepreneurship and internship programme in 2017. Businesses were set-up for these girls in the area of fashion design and shoe-making. After four months of setting-up the business of fashion design, one of the girls - Sarah has experienced increased income and has contributed to fending for the family. She has this to share-“My business was not moving smoothly when I started as sometimes I could stay up to one week without patronage from anyone. I started marketing my business by talking to people on the streets, church, neighbourhood and social media platforms. After making those efforts, I started having customers and the number increased over time.”i am now earning up to 5,000 naira a week from my business which was difficult to get before now. The income has been very helpful as I now contribute to feeding at home. My sewing skills have greatly improved so I make nice designs that attract more customers.” I appreciate GPI for enabling me to become an entrepreneur. I have gotten another shop where I intend to relocate to very soon.”
