Story of the Business:
The rapid economic growth in Nigeria has brought a large number of automobiles with it, leading the need of skilled electrical repair. Muhammad’s business specializes in the identification and repair of electrical faults in cars. He works with almost all car models, giving him a strong competitive edge over his competitors, who only work with few car models. The versatility of his electrical repairs have earned his business a reputation for quality and reliability. The combination of his competitive edge and his reputation has brought Muhammad’s business many loyal customers. Muhammad spent four years with his previous employer, learning how to repair electrical systems in Honda, Toyota and Opel cars. This experience pushed Muhammad to learn how to perform electrical repairs on a wider range of cars, giving him an edge over many competitors. Muhammad’s success has pushed him to continue expanding his services so that more customers can have access to quality service; he also hopes to hire more employees and provide them with their own shot at success.
Muhammad’s efficient service has earned him a reputation as a problem solver and has earned him a position as a community leader. Many members of the community look to Muhammad for guidance, allowing Muhammad to change his community for the better. His efforts to provide training in electrical repair have empowered many hard working men to seek jobs of their own – to seek a better future.
