She said while others love going to the market, they simply do not have the time to do so due to their job schedules.
Faith said she is often a life-save for her clients.
"I saw a need for this when I was doing a 9-5 and it was so stressful having to go to the market then go home to cook. I know so many women faced that challenge and I also loved going to the market, a lot of people don't. So, why not get paid for that?
"Seeing women juggle work and home valance and wearing themselves out. If I can help balance that part whilst they attend to other things, it would be nice. Also, some people genuinely hate going to the market."
Faith who has a degree in Microbiology from the University of Benin said she has been shopping for people now for four years. She was however doing it for her boss for free when she was working until someone paid her for it after she posted it on her social media account.
