Chineye Umenike is building an amazing brand


For a woman who has been in paid employment for about 16 years, Chinenye felt it was time to make a shift and do something on her own. She loved make up and a conversation with her sister who is a chemist cleared things up. They would create make up products that were organic organic and sell. This led to Kilienma a brand that provides customers with makeup using mainly natural ingredients. They also educate their customers on the importance of knowing what their make up contains.

Although Chinenye has experienced a lot of failures especially when it comes to creating new products but this has not been able to make her give up on her business instead she uses the mistakes as a basis for learning. 

Since she loves what she does, Chinenye is motivated to go on even when things seem tough. 

Her desire is to grow a business that will not lost sight of its brand philosophy. I’d like to be a huge employer of labour and provide training, thereby equipping others who may wish to start their own business.
