She said they rejected her job offer because it was not a “shiny job” in an air-conditioned office.

Instead, they had to work in an open garden, where she had rented part of a branded 40ft container from another food vendor in the city.

She said the job was paying between ₵700 and above ₵1,000 monthly, which was not bad considering the economic situation in the country.

However, she said the applicants’ faces changed when they saw the kitchen's location and structure.

She said they preferred a place where they could boast of working.

Uriebu said she was not deterred by the challenge, as she was ready to do everything necessary to get her business up and running in Abuja.
