About Me

Three am a graduate and practising solicitor. I had all my education, primary, secondary and university,in the ancient city of Kano.Raising the resources for law school was a challenge, but by God I succeeded. I am the sixth child out of seven of us though one of us is late now. I am still unmarried but in the process of settling down soonest. As a member of the bar,I'm schooled in contract law and I am honest,easygoing, intentional and focus.By way of diversification my elder brother has invited me to be a partner in his school business. I married my heartrob three days ago.

My Business

Food is the mist basic need of man and the city I reside in,Kano,since the ancient time is know as a tran-Saharan hub of commerce. It's the second most populated city after Lagos. My business is bulk purchase of fishes from Maiduguri, Crayfish and palm oil from Oron,grains from Jalingo,yams from Markudi and resell other wholesellers and retailers. It's quite capital intensive but highly profitable.

Loan Proposal

Thanks once again great team,once again I need to restock my supply of wholesale/ retail seafoods so that I can keep up with demands and not lose customers. Be generous,as it's your usual response,to this my appeal. Thank you.

Income Source

The engine room and driving force of the Nigeria's economy is the SMEs,and to a larger extent,the informal sector. Businesses are marching out of the limitations of the pandemic and sales are good. To repay this loan,as has been my way of life by God's grace,will be a no brainier.
