A Nigerian woman hailing from the Northern part of the country has caught attention after she significantly improved her life and built two houses by selling a modest local snack called masa.
Identified as Mrs. Rebecca Dung, the woman who comes from Gombe told NAN in an interview that she began selling rice before she switched to her present trade years ago in Bauchi State.
In addition to the houses she built, Dung added that she has also been able to train her three children.
In her words;
I achieved a lot through the business including, training my three children. One is an undergraduate; the other is in a seminary, while the last one is happily married.
I am grateful to God for His grace that has sustained me over the years. Selling masa has brought me good fortunes.
I built a house here in Gombe, another in Jos and I have an undeveloped plot, which I also bought with the proceeds from this business
One of the most important things that have helped me all these years is good savings culture. If you are not disciplined financially, you cannot succeed in any business.
Masa business is a good business that has empowered me to achieve a lot. I am a woman that is respected by my children and everyone because of what I have been able to achieve over the years. Women that sit at home must understand that their relevance in the society lies in what they can offer to support themselves and their households.
People respect me today because of what I have achieved as a woman and I can tell you that, respect is earned; so women should go out and earn their respect.
