Story of the Business:
Usman was just 18 years old when he finished his secondary school. His father told him he had to learn a skill. Usman was trained for about 3 years, after which he went on to work with other people where he learnt various aspects of furniture carpentry. Years later, Usman, desires to own his own shop and begin to earn some better income for himself and his family. Usman, recognized his strengths and weaknesses early in life and decided to acquire the carpentry skill which he had an aptitude for. This was an opportunity to help his immediate family and now to help his wife and his 2 year old daughter.
Usman presently has 4 young boys working and training with him, he gives them a place to learn a skill and stay off the streets. Also, Usman gives members of his community great deals for all the work they bring to him
