In a previous report by Legit.ng, a Nigerian lady identified as Nyifamu Ogechi Manzo inspired people on social media with her success story a year after investing in poultry farming.
Sharing her story on Twitter, Nyifamu said she started poultry farming in a spare room her dad allowed her and her brother to use.
"We started from 50 birds and then 70, 100 and 120 birds over time."
Nyifamu said she thought of expanding her business and owning a farm since she had built relations and acquired a good number of customers.
