I realized I was always in dept because the ¢559 (N38,266.58) salary wasn’t enough, so I felt I needed an extra source of income. I started making beaded bags, bracelets and anklets for sale. Anytime I closed from work, I would go to town to shop for materials and work on orders.

So that was how it started. And I realized most of the things I was doing was hand made so that’s how I came by the name “CarolHandies”.

Fafanyo's business started picking up and she went into it full time in 2018, while still doing her national service.
