Waste to wealth

Mrs. Matilda Taiwo is one woman who is very determined to succeed and excel in her waste to wealth venture which she started

When she resigned from her salary work, she went into picking pure-water packing bags off the street, she gathered so much that when she got a company to buy them, she made six hundred and fifty thousand naira, that straightens her resolves that there is money in the recycling

From there she got a contract to be supplying her nylon to a Chinese company, one day one of the company’s director told her, either Nigerians are lazy or blind because there’s lots of money lying in their gutters and no one seems to care. This statement spurred her into action.

She set up her own company, Goodware stitches ltd. and with locally fabricated machines she went into production, six months after a heavy downpour in Lagos caused the building she rented the ground floor to collapse and nothing was salvaged.

She sold her cars and other properties despite family opposition to start all over again. Today she is happy her gut instinct paid off, her waste bag nylon is growing and her company is expanding.
