This YABATECH Student wants to take her Late Grandma’s Crayfish Business to the Next Level | WATCH



Queen Edet, a student of Yaba College of Technology tells the story behind her crayfish business, how she started, the challenges she faces and her plans for the future to Battabox.

She mentioned that the Crayfish business isn’t a survival mechanism, as she deliberately wanted to start off now, having learnt from her grandma, so she can grow into it and continue once she done with her education.

She also said she had some of her friends ridicule her for starting such business and had to let them go.

She mentioned that she brings in the crayfish from Akwa Ibom State and her customers include her lecturers, fellow students, online followers, working class women, among others.

    Those friends making fun of her will be the same set of people that will roam the streets of Nigeria looking for employment, while Queen is creating employment!!
    Kudos! We need more young Nigerian going this route, unfortunately the FGN hasn’t put any mechanism in place to drive or encourage entrepreneurship!!,
