I am a graduate of mechanical engineering with 4years working experience.. I was relief of my employment .I decided to start a small business with a bucket used to bail water from my kitchen..wash the bucket and use it to wash peoples clothes as a drycleaner..I was sitting mostly in sun to wash.it was not palatable.. I grew from there to buying a big washing machine and after another 1 month I bought a dryer.today I have 2 workers.

Dear Ramseyjay,
I read your story and thought of all the African youth waiting for someone 'rich' to give them capital to start a business, instead of building it with the resources they have!" Your story is something that African youth need to hear, and emulate. There are so many solutions accessible to the youth if they believe that they are their skills and innovation are the 'miracle' they are waiting for. Good on you! I congratulate you on both your success, from jobless to employer, and your vision of creating something out of nothing.
Keep growing sis, and helping others around you to grow and catch that spirit. There are many change makers and chnage activators in this online community, and it is wonderful to have another solution-oriented sister join us. Welcome :)
