This is Mrs Alia, one of our beneficiaries, she has six children. (5girls & one boy) also her late husband younger sister with her daughter(seperated from her husband are living together with her at home. Mrs Alia is the one taking care of 10people(including herself).
She is a very hard working, goes to Aba every two weeks to purchase stockfish worth of One hundred and fifty thousand naira. Despite increase in cost price of the stockfish, the business still continues and she has costumers that demand her to supply even some White men are interested in purchasing from her.
With this business she has been able to cater for her children and her late husband relations. For Schooling, clothing and feeding. One of her children just graduated from University (discipline-microbiology) now going for HSE Course.other are still schooling, they look humble and obedient.
This higher demand from customers help her greatly to supply in quantity both in Shell office and outside the Company. Thus they pay her on time. People order by calling her on phone which I witnessed when I was with her yesterday, she is happy doing it. Hence the continuity of her stockfish business. We will monitor her and start discussing the next level
