Mrs Esther Udofia (64) lost her husband in the year 2013, and was left to cater for her 4 children who are almost through with secondary school. Life has been a struggle for her and the children since the responsibilities were now on her shoulders. Without having a concrete business to help with the daily struggles, Mrs Udofia resorted to selling petty goods like oranges and banana for the upkeep of the family.
During my visit to Nsit Atai, Akwa Ibom State, I met Mrs Udofia and engaged in a lengthy conversation with her. Her wish was that if she could own a polythene store, it will help reduce her suffering and also give her income to pay the children’s school fees.
Polythene bags popularly known in Nigeria as ‘waterproof’, represents different needs for final consumers which involves users including households, market persons and small businesses that needs packaging for their operations. Since virtually all business big or small patronize it, it’s a viable business.
This campaign is raised to assist Mrs Udofia realize her wish to own a polythene store. The funds raised will be used to:
* Rent a shop (2 years tenure)
* Purchase a generator ( Sumec EL 3000
* Working capital ( purchase of raw materials such as big black polythene, Crayfish polythene, counting white polythene (fufu nylon) e.t.c in bulks for take off).
Your donation to this campaign will be greatly appreciated. “Little is much when it lives in your heart”, it begins with you.
