‘I have no re­gret dump­ing master’s de­gree for trad­ing’

Daily Trust - - BUSINESS -

I have no re­gret ven­tur­ing into the business sec­tor,” said Bishiriyya.

The new business in­tro­duced by Bishiriyya in­volves buy­ing, sell­ing and de­liv­ery. Ac­cord­ing to her, the new business re­lies 100% on trust and that deal­ing with kid­dies’ wares has to be done with a lot of cau­tion. The business also in­volves door-to-door de­liv­ery based on on­line shop­ping and also han­dling of frag­ile items.

She added that most of her wares are ad­ver­tised and sold through so­cial me­dia.

She fur­ther re­vealed that, women can still be ac­tively en­gaged in business with­out own­ing a shop through the use of so­cial me­dia. “Tak­ing the north­ern part of this coun­try as an ex­am­ple, a typ­i­cal north­ern Nige­rian woman need not go out or own a shop in the mar­ket to op­er­ate a suc­cess­ful business ven­ture; all she needs is a small cap­i­tal and the plat­form to ad­ver­tise.

Ac­cord­ing to the CEO she is presently plan­ning to have other women on board based on their var­i­ous business in­ter­est fields. “I have plans to en­cour­age other young women to also use the avail­able plat­forms in start­ing their own business em­pires,” con­cluded the CEO.
