A young man with the Twitter handle @izuchi_ejiogu has taken to the bird app to share his inspiring success story.

In a post on Thursday, January 21, the man said that he went from a person who does the menial job of offloading containers as a way to make ends meet to a person who now has a shop.

The man said that his fabric business started in 2021, meaning his transformation happened in a year.

In the first frame of the photos he shared, he could be seen on the loads he just helped takedown from a container.

The second frame shows his new level as he posed beside the fabrics he is selling in front of his shop. The man, therefore, asked people to patronise him as he does not have any room for failure.

See his post below:

Many showed his great support on Twitter as they congratulated him and offered ways they could help his business grow.

Below are some of the reactions:
