The young lady revealed that she delved into shoemaking when she was 16 years old with the money she had saved from the N300 her mum gives her occasionally.

She also revealed that due to the poor background that she came from, she had to be a shoemaker for one year to save for her education.

According to Faith, when she approached the person who was going to teach her how to make and mend shoes, the cobbler thought she was unserious.

The woman who is now a proud business owner and professional shoemaker, said that though she knows the job is not an easy one, she endured it with the determination to succeed.

Faith, whose big dreams seem to be unlimited, says she will build a university in the future.
