Nigeria. My name is Nduruo Ifunanya Cynthia. I am from Nigeria, am 25 years old and am married with a daughter. There is an adage that says you don’t know what you have till you lose it. This could have been my story if I had not had an interest in taking the course.
When Mr Okoro Ezenwa Omaka came to our estate to tell us about the course the first time we weren’t interested but when he revisited the estate again I decided to give it a try and am grateful to Heavenly Father for giving the ability to listen to the still small voice that asked me to give the course a try because taking this course has opened my eyes that I can actually be of a service to my community. My business has started seeing a profit because I now pay myself unlike before when I was robbing my business. Honestly this course has helped me become a good mother, wife, sister, friend and neighbor to my family and community at large.
Ivory Coast. I am Bilé N’dré Bérenger, a young graduate of Mines, Geology and Petroleum since 2015. Unfortunately after my internship in a mining company and then in an oil depot, I was confronted with a health concern, which required a costly surgical intervention of my spine, for a correction of the anomaly.
This allowed me to fully recover the use of my lower limbs. During my school career, precisely since the fourth grade in 2006, I started home-teaching for primary school students. At the beginning, I had only one student of CP1, who needed a very particular follow-up because of his IQ which was much lower than that of his comrades. He was our neighbor’s son. I was just starting out; at the results of their first exam, the child had the average points but was the best among the children of the neighborhood. This is how they sent their children to me so that I could follow them as well. This is where my passion started till today, and that did not prevent me from continuing my school studies. However, I lacked structure and organization, but thanks to the MBS program, I learned to better structure and organize myself. I learned to keep an account register, to do a Cash Flow Projection, especially to improve progressively by prioritizing the important areas of my life. Today I can say that thanks to this MBS program, I have set myself long and short term goals such as: having a salary and saving the company’s money without mixing it with my personal savings, investing in a productive asset and avoiding unnecessary fixed costs. So thanks to the MBS, I created a micro enterprise called “Performance Cours à Domicile” for home-teaching.
Ghana. The MBS course gave Vera Anyeley Anang additional knowledge to allow her personal life and business to prosper.
When I first heard about the MBS program, I thought I already knew how to run my business hence I was reluctant in taking the course. I soaked in a lot of ideas and skills pertaining to running a business on the street. I am glad to have learned how to save money regularly, make and advertise my business in 30 seconds and how to strategically analyze and improve my business process.
Congo. I am ALISSIA ZANGA. I’m a student. I am 23 years old and I like music. What I learned in the MBS program was how to start a business with little money, how to apply the 6Ps of business, how to become self-sufficient by starting my own business and how to save at least a coin or two per day, something I couldn’t do before.
