Olajumoke Omosowone hails from Nigeria and was a participant in 2018 Ignite program. Prior to that time, she never never owned business but the fire in her was ignited after the program. Right from Ghana, she conceived her business ideas and got to work. As an academic specializing in Fish Nutrition, she started the registration process of her company, “KEAFI FOODS LIMITED”.

KEAFI FOODS

Vision: When you think about quality fish and fish products, think of KEAFI
Mission: Producing healthy, sufficient and nutritive fish and fish products at affordable prices

Ignite 2018 had a lot of impact on Olajumoke starting with The journey to and fro the “Anum Forest” which was a remarkable experience. The walk through the jungle taught her that the journey of a thousand miles begins with a step. For a business to thrive, the individual needs to take a step at a time. Secondly, embarking on the journey for her was by “faith” because she never had an idea of where the journey would lead to nor how it would end. A business adventure is that of faith, which entails holding on to one’s dream or passion and never let go, believing that all that started well would also end well.

Olajumoke was also able to learn a lot from the different facilitators especially on the topics: developing a business canvas model, financial intelligence, pitching one’s business ideas, business negotiation skills, good financial record keeping, lessons from coaches, setting financial goals and having action plans. Above all, she also had the opportunity of meeting 9 other intelligent ladies from the continent with cross-fertilization of brilliant business ideas.

Though KEAFI Foods is still at its infancy stage, there is no doubt that in the years to come, it would become a beehive of profitable activities.
