MEET The Nigerian Graduate That Hawks Garri – He Makes N4,500 Daily

When life gives you lemons, you make lemonades and this is exactly what Anichebe Chidubem Joachim did when he lost his job as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Anichebe took to the streets of Enugu to make ends meet by hawking Garri.

Chidubem, who is a graduate of Philosophy from the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, in an interview revealed that he makes as low as 4,500 naira daily from his Garri hawking business and he also revealed his challenges.

The Igbo born corporate worker cum businessman by circumstances says he is proud of his Garri hawking business as it helps to put food on the table.

On his Educational background, he said;

“I am a graduate of Philosophy from the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka (UNIZIK) and I graduated in 2014.”

On why he ventured into the Garri business, he replied;

“I started this business after I lost my job as a result of the COVID-19 lockdown. I sell white Garri on the streets. I hawk with a wheelbarrow. I decided to venture into the business because I was getting broke. Garri moves in the market faster than any other products. And people must eat”.

On how lucrative the business is, he said;

“I make above #1500 after selling a bag, and depending on the market, I sell like 2 to 3 bags daily”

“I love meeting up with people’s needs, hence the joy and strength to carry on. No one should despise their days of little beginning as little drops of water make an ocean”.

On his challenges, he said;

“There is no job that is easy and I have pride in what I do. I am stealing so no need to be ashamed. The only challenge I have now is capital to boost up my business now. I am really having challenges with my capital.”
