Anih became a painter after she left secondary school, as her parents could not afford to give her money to further her education, Vanguard reports.
“After my secondary School education in Enugu State, I came to Abuja to live with my elder sister since there was nobody to help further my education.
The only way to survive was to get something that brings me money. I ventured into jobs like selling plumbing materials and phone booth business, and then I met a friend called Zaccheus. We call him “The Lion”, who was into painting and I decided to join him and he taught me the job. I’ve been doing this for the past two years and I love my job because it brings me satisfaction.
I need money to enable me to meet my needs and the way I know I can get it is through hard work,” she said.
Anih also stated that she would encourage other females to go into painting, as it is a great source of income, and working hours are flexible.
