The Minna, Niger State resident, who sold roasted yam along the busy Shiroro Road, explained that she had been making good sales and her business was doing well, despite the economic upheavals currently facing the country.
In her correspondence with City News in Minna on Thursday, Nwosu said that she began the business about 15 years ago, adding that the profit realised from the trade had helped in lifting her family above poverty.
She said, “I started this business over 15 years ago and with the proceeds, I was able to train five graduates. So, as far as I am concerned, the business is booming, no matter the hardship in the country, people must eat, you cannot avoid food.”
The mother of nine said also that she usually opened for business at 7 am daily and began serving her customers who comprised majorly commercial motorcyclists, artisans, pedestrians and motorists.
Nwosu told Punch correspondents that she roasted nothing less than 150 tubers of yam per day, adding, however, that the economic recession had forced her to reduce her daily production quantity to about 100 tubers instead.
