Henry made a niche for himself in the fashion world by diversifying from traditional men’s and women’s wears to producing personalized shirts, t-shirts, face caps, and native wears, among other things, as part of his Fine & Applied Arts degree at Delta State University, Abraka. He has acquired additional equipment, attended several trade shows, and is married to a STEPreneur in Hairdressing and Makeup.
“My line of business has been that of innovation, creativity and diversification. I went into production of customized wears because they are trendy and more lucrative. I sell most of my products online. I have acquired state of the art equipment for branding and an industrial pressing iron for printing designs on fabrics among other equipment. I am working hard to acquire more.
“I have 3 employees and have trained 7 persons who have established their businesses outside Delta State. I am married now. It was challenging at first, but the passion for what I do kept me focused. The beauty of it all is that I am still in business and doing great.
“I have gone for several exhibitions. I score Governor Ifeanyi Okowa 80% for his job creation initiative through entrepreneurship development and for his commitment to curbing unemployment among youths.”
