My Husband Is In The Village, I Trained My Kids With This Business But l’m Now In Debt- Okpa Seller
The constant increase in the cost of goods has had effects on both the market sellers and buyers. Many customers can no longer afford to buy the same quantity of goods they used to buy in the past because of the price increase. Similarly, many sellers no longer have the financial capability to manage their businesses.
However, in a recent interview with Legit TV, a market woman who sells OKPA narrated how her flourishing business began to suffer problems in the last two years. The woman said things are now very expensive at the market. She said prices of goods increase daily.
The market woman said that it was this Okpa business she used taking care of her family and training 3 of her children in the university, claiming that two are about to graduate from the university. On the other hand, she lamented that the prices of the good keeps rising anytime she wants to restock. She said the business used to be a very profitable one but things have changed in the last two years. For this reason, the woman lamented that people now sell goods to her on credit and she’s now in a lot of debt.
The trader said whenever she tries to balance her books by calculating, she doesn’t have profit. She lamented that people who sold to her are troubling her.
When she was asked about her husband, she said he was in the village. She said she’s the only one in Lagos hustling. The woman said if she knows another business, she’ll stop selling Okpa. She concluded by saying she needs support for her business.
