A Nigerian woman identified as Jumoke Dada is a role model to many women aspiring to greatness.
She is the founder and chief executive officer of Taeillo, a start-up brand that produces urban furniture using African-inspired pieces.
Jumoke said she started her business with zero capital, a computer and her idea, Business Day reports.
In her words:
“What I wanted was to create a great piece because I realised that many of our traditional arts and crafts evolved overtime to include practical and decorative items and that human expressions find their way through various forms of art."
The woman, who established her company in 2016, is rebranding the African culture and identity through design and furniture.
She said that payment from her first contract was used for the purchase of materials needed for the first furniture piece she made.
According to Jumoke, her company sources all the raw materials used in production locally.
