Yes, I think I am one of those that dislike using liquid wash that does not foam well to wash my plates and do my laundries.

Welcome to honournaija_blog, can we meet you??
Thank you very much. I am Tolulope from Ekiti state and a graduate of Ibadan Polytechnic.
Thank you. What inspired you to go into this kind of business??
I realized that soap is useful for both the rich, middle class and the poor, everyone needs soap make use of soap and I make it useful for people and sale in small quantity, available in big quantity and more, it a daily use, is either you use it to wash clothes, plate or bath, I can meet peoples needs from it that is one of the major thing that inspired me.
When did you start, for how long???
I started soap making during my nysc program, 8month ago.
Beautiful. What has been the challenges so far??
There are a lot of competitors in the soap making business, there are those who have made name already, part of the challenges is how to make my brand better than others or to come up higher, getting customer people are been scared at times the name not been heard or popular. How raise demand and get customer on the product.
What keeps you going??
There is an adage that says winners don’t quit and quitters don’t win.
I really want to win and if I want to win I need to face the hard time, not been accepted now does not mean I won’t be accepted, it is just the matter of time so I need to stay in the business and keep pushing it.
Inspiring. Can you say your customers have derived maximum satisfaction thus far???
The customers are satisfied to some certain level but you can’t completely satisfied customers, that is why I need to keep improving and adding more value to my soap making so I can give maximum satisfaction to the customers.

With my plan on value adding process I will definitely make it, in 10years time I would be known, I will have distributors, people will advertise my product in the market.
What is/are your advice to younger ones that would want to go into your type of business??
To the young ones, you can become who you want to become, work on it don’t get frustrated, you may have enough competitors and feel like quiting but remember that quitters don’t win so you can definitely get there.
