Nze Arinze Chukwu, a father of six, has found a means of staying afloat financially at a time when unemployment is considered a big deal in Nigeria. The young man, who picks used nylon on the streets to rewash and sell to companies who have needs for them, has shared with Legit TV how his hustle started and what he has been able to achieve with the business.

The nylon picker also stated that he does not make money daily; sourcing for enough nylon in a week makes it difficult to want to sell per day. The profit made is also unpredictable as he can make double the amount invested in purchasing the nylon or half the amount. It is all dependent on the market according to him.
