Getting a comfortable job you like is not easy in Nigeria, that’s why many Nigerian graduates are embracing entrepreneurship.
Most graduates who studied courses like engineering, medicine, economics and so on at times end up going into entrepreneurship. This choice might be because the graduate wants to try a different thing but most times it is because of lack of valid jobs.
However, in Edike’s case she chose to start selling snails because she decided it was what she desired to do and it has been working well for the young model.
According to the female graduate, she choose the career part in 2016, while she was doing ushering services and stumbled on an agrobusiness summit. The summit educated people on how to earn money in agriculture business.
