How the IMSU student hostel mini store business started
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported how Prosper first converted his off-campus hostel room into a mini-mart.
On how he combined it with academic work, the young man admitted to Legit.ng that it was challenging at the onset, but he got the hang of it with time.
He relished the massive support and patronage of students in the hostel and around gave him.
"Starting was difficult cos i had to mix it with school and i was lagging in the business( My priority is to my education) but as time goes on and i started making extra cash from my other businesses like, Sells of Data, TV Cable subscription, Electricity unit etc...
"I was able to employ someone and don't worry. I'm good with inventory. I increase my stock and that was a risk cos i didn't think My inmates would patronize me to that extent but so far business as been going well."
