My name is Abasifreke Joseph Archibong. I’m a 25-year-old entrepreneur from Ibiono Ibom local government area of Akwa Ibom state. I’m the brain behind Kreamy’s Chops and Pastries.

The lockdown made me realize that I can be useful to myself and the people around me like my family, friends, acquaintances, and society at large. I wasn’t comfortable with always being at the receiving end, and I needed to support myself. So with my growing love of baking and with the help of my pastor who taught me how to bake, I started selling my home baked bread and meat pies. From the money I made from selling my bread and meat pies, I was able to pay for a 2 weeks baking class where I learned how to bake cakes and many other pastries.

People eat snacks on a daily basis so it’s very possible to make money from selling cakes, doughs, and pastries. I started my business with a startup capital of N7000 in 2020.

I experienced success in my business when I got contracts to supply snacks for major and minor events, and also supply about 700 packs of snacks for an event. Thinking about it gave me anxiety and I sincerely doubted my abilities. But delivery was successful and I was even happier when I got a record number of positive reviews.

My low points were the times I encountered setbacks in the course of production which led to losses. On those days the idea of giving up made so much sense, but I still woke up the next day and told myself, “We go again today”.

I have thought about giving up in the face of challenges but the joy of seeing my customers satisfied keeps me going and motivates me to work even harder.

I do most of the work alone and only engage people when I have bulk orders. My business is yet to be registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission and I am intentionally working towards that.

Investors can support my business with a standard oven and mixer to ease the pressure of the work, and publicity to promote my business and help it reach a larger audience.
