My name is Kolawole Orowole. I am an entrepreneur, selling foodstuff, children's goods, and other products. I also am a staff member at Omole, Phase 2 (Berger, Lagos, Nigeria), serving as a Communications Facilitator.
I am convinced that integrity is more important than any financial gratification.
I trade in various goods for babies and children, including Pampers (disposable diapers), footwear, school bags, foodstuff, lunch bags, etc. I sell to people around me.
I also produce affordable hand-sanitiser, and I purchase face-masks in large quantities to resell.
My business has grown with the help of loans funded by lenders at Zidisha. With the loans, I have been able to invest in face-masks and hand-sanitisers during the COVID-19 pandemic, and have been selling them in the major markets around me. I further have been given a contract to supply sanitiser to banks and other nearby organizations, because my prices are more affordable than competitors' prices.
Additionally, I have pursued school contracts for disinfecting/decontaminating their premises before school reopenings and, in fact, I have been given a school contract to do just that. I am hoping to get more similar contracts to expand my business and increase my profits.
I need this loan to restock more products to sell, as well as to buy supplies for making more hand-sanitiser.
Risk & Revenue Information: I have heavily invested in ventures that are essential, such as: raw foodstuff and baby needs that are consumed by people around me. I also produce affordable hand sanitiser, and I purchase face masks in large quantity to resell affordably. Now, too, I have been given a contract to fumigate schools in preparation for their reopening. Therefore, I expect to be able to repay this loan.
