What major challenges have you faced as an entrepreneur
How did attending ELP impact your business? And how will you put what you have learnt into your business?
ELP has opened up the world of business and entrepreneurship to me. I have learnt new and more efficient ways of doing things. My approach to my business has completely changed.
You are one of the awardees of the business grant. How did you feel when your name was announced?
I was super excited.
How will that grant help your business?
With the ELP grant, I have procured materials to start a new line called El-eganx 9ja. This line is a unique collection of corporate outfits with Nigerian elements and would be launched at the upcoming Edo Fashion and style week.
