Story of the Business:
Musa started gardening with an employer where he began work as a janitor. But his commitment to work and his love for flowers, attracted him to his employer who taught him all he knows about gardening. Today he desires to turn his passion into a business and earn more from it. Musa started working as a gardener with the Cosmpolitan cleaners in Bauchi. A man named Esan taught him how to tend to flowers, since then he has worked as a gardener for 8 years and has worked for over a hundred people in this time. Though he doesn’t officially own his own gardening shop and business, he see this as an opportunity to own one.Musa is married with one wife and has 4 children, all who are in school.
