Meet Our Entrepreneur of the Week: Onyinyechi Nzekwe Barbara
Onyinyechi Nzekwe Barbara was born and bred in Lagos state and hails from Anambra state she is a nurse, who finished from the school of nursing and became an entrepreneur due to her love for entrepreneurship.
Currently she is the head of Okaka Stores (Okaka meaning great in Igbo), a foodstuff retail store located at Green Mall that sells anything form cartons of meat and poultry to toothpicks and serviettes.
Okaka stores was founded early this year, 2021 and the store was made from the need to make food stuffs accessible to people who lived close by instead of going to the big markets far away. Most of the items sold at the store are imported and they also offer delivery services within and outside Nigeria with affordable and pocket friendly prices.
Miss Onyinyechi states that starting a business in a new neighborhood was challenging as it takes time for people to get to know you and your business. She talked about how hard it was to make sales when she started and how her consistency paid off and God showed up for her. By God’s grace she has been growing steadily.
She hopes to open more branches in other areas to help meet the needs of people living there and gain more customers abroad as she delivers outside Nigeria too.
Below are her details.
Address: A/11 Green Mall plaza by Greenfield estate, Ago Palace way, Okota, Isolo, Lagos.
In the words of Miss Onyinyechi “God is taking me somewhere, and I will get there”
