Meet Blessing Pam, a 300-level student of Geography and Natural Resources Management at the University of Uyo, hailing from Jos, Plateau State. Blessing is an upcoming front-end web developer and is also into sales of shoes, oil perfume, data subscription, clothes, and hair braiding.

Blessing faced significant challenges as a student due to the lack of financial support and not having a father figure to rely on. Being a female added to these difficulties. However, during the 2022 strike, she took the initiative to secure a job, saved up, and eventually started her own business selling perfumes, shoes, recharge cards, and data subscriptions.

Blessing Pam

She is a versatile businesswoman who has avoided financial breakdowns. She is proud to earn money every day from her various businesses, including selling oil perfumes, data subscriptions, and shoes. She also credits her success to the blessings of God.

Having a pleasant scent is an essential part of dressing, and many individuals use perfume daily, making the perfume industry a profitable venture. Blessing highlights the significance of data in her subscription business by citing W Edwards Deming’s quote, “Without data, you’re just another person with an opinion.” She elaborates on data’s importance, stating that it is the driving force behind everything we do. People and businesses rely on data constantly, and even small savings can lead to great success.

Blessing launched her business with an initial investment of 50,000 naira. Reflecting on her achievements, she shares, “It’s been a success story that I’m proud to tell. I credit my success to my listening skills and the support of my mentors. I was able to purchase a laptop to further my web training, upgrade my phone, and even cultivate carrots in my hometown.” However, Blessing admits that her biggest challenges are currently limited funds and time to run ads for her business, as well as high transportation costs for delivering oil perfumes and shoes to her customers.

Blessing admits that she has considered giving up several times when faced with challenges. Specifically, when she began selling shoes, it was difficult to convince people of her legitimacy due to bad experiences with online vendors. Additionally, she faced challenges with colleagues buying oil perfume on credit.

She currently runs her business alone since it has not yet expanded to hire additional staff. In addition to making daily social media posts, she also personally responds to customers’ inquiries about her products. Furthermore, her business has not been registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission yet.

Blessing understands the value of having a mentor and has chosen Mrs. Meflyn Anwana, Barrister Morgan Ekanem, and Miss Blessing Jaja as her business mentors. She has been a follower of Meflyn Anwana on Facebook for quite some time and admires her genuine concern for others. Blessing has gained valuable insights on entrepreneurship and various other topics from her teachings.

In addition, policymakers and investors can provide financial assistance to Blessing in order to improve her business and address any issues it may currently be facing. Blessing expresses gratitude towards the organizers of this competition for allowing her the chance to share her personal story.
