Explain your project in details:

As I earlier stated, I launched this project in April 2019. The main motive behind the starting of the business was to get myself something doing and keep myself busy. But after the launch of this business, I realized that I can do much if I take my business to the next level. I started thinking of how to improve my business, from which I thought of opening an Instagram and Facebook handle with the name"SHOES BY MJ". After that I also thought of registering the brand as an enterprise with the required authorities here in my country. I have the vision of building this brand even beyond Africa, empower more people along the way, improve the lives of my people and also help eradicate poverty and contribute towards the economy of my country and the world in general as contained in the Sustainable Development Goals mission. As of now, I've started having positive responses from the public who are my customers about my product and business. The registration of my brand is still processing which after it's done, I'll be able to receive a distinct name and registration number for my brand with which I will be able to export my products out of the country.

Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development

The kind of responses I have received from my customers, and the kind of praises I received prove that I have surely started impacting the lives of my people and can't wait for the success of my brand to give back the love and care I have received from my people. By recruiting more people to work with me, I will contribute my own share to developing my society.

Sustainability and future plans

The major plan I have now for the sustenance of my business is getting loan or participating in competitions like yours in order to have a stable financing source so that my business can see the light of the day. If this mission is successful, the next plan on my list is human development and empowerment. getting more people to work with me will help the people and my business at the same time as I will be able to reach out to more people and have an increase in production. I plan to extend the reach of my brand beyond the African continent to other world countries so that I will be able to prove that entrepreneurship is surely a good thing for the people in order to overcome poverty and achieve the 17 goals outlined by the Sustainable Development Goals Project.

Your profile as an entrepreneur

I was born on the 23rd of December 2000 to Mr. and Mrs. Lawan Zakari. I did my primary and secondary education in Kano, NIGERIA. I started my bachelors degree in Chemistry Educcation at Bayero University Kano (one of the best universities in sub - saharan Africa) in the year 2018. Among my motivation of venturing into entrepreneurship was my desire to run away from government and private sector job, the agenda of My President His Excellency President Muhammadu Buhari, the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to promote locally made products, my mission of giving back to the society from where I hailed among others to mention but few. This conception of this idea started in the year 2016 but I was not able to make it alive until year 2019. Through all these years, I ha been planning on the type of business I will venture into, how will I make it happen, how will I survive all the challenges and obstacles. With the inauguration of this business, and the kind of hope I have in it, I am sure my business is going to be a success. I will like to use this medium to thank the entire entrepreneurship campus team, organizer, and partners for giving me an opportunity to voice out myself.
