In Juliet’s words: “A friend actually thought me how to make the Pap when I gave birth to my 2nd child. Most persons saw it and it was their first time seeing Pap that was made with 6 different grains (Rice, Millet, Soyabeans, guinea corn, yellow maize, and groundnuts). Then, few friends reached out to me via inbox and advice I take it as a business that people will buy from me. And been that graduate who was jobless and decided to give it a trial.”

Narrating how she fared in the business, she said: “The first year was not just funny cos they were times that sales wouldn’t be that just encouraging that I’ll end up consuming it with my kids. This is my 3rd year in this business to the glory of God and I can say God has been really faithful, I make like times 3 – 4 of the quantity of grains that I used to make while I started the business and sell in no time. I now have customers even outside Benue State. I also have my grinding engine and trusting God for a dehydrator so I can start processing it to powdered form also.”
