After his university studies in 2005, he decided to start his own business. He then opened a cellphone booth with accessories and also sells purified water. Emmanuel is working hard because his ambition is to open a small factory to produce purified water. As he wants to develop and diversify his business, he decided to join one of Hope’s groups in August 2008. He makes a profit of about $30 per day. Emmanuel has succeeded with good strategies to build up permanent customers. He always talks with his customers, he knows them well by their names, and he never runs out of stock.
