What also fuelled her resolve to quit office work, according to her, was that she could count people who have graduated in her family with no comfortable source of income.

Bose who had always fancied farming as a kid said her family members didn't welcome the idea ss they opined that farming is work for non-graduates and village folks.

7 years down the line, Bose said she has no regrets about becoming a farmer.

On challenges faced on the job, she highlighted climate change, people stealing her produce and the cost of paying farm workers as part of them.

When asked if she may consider dumping the farm work if someone offers her huge money to leave it, she said in Yoruba:

"If someone offers me big money to quit my farm work and leave the village, I would not accept it because the money would later finish and when this happens, I will start thinking again."
