My Pap Making Business Story – Must Read
Talking about the word “entrepreneurship” is very big thing, not not as easy that you will type it out of your device. It comes with a lot of tasks and sacrifice.
Mum started it many years ago, but she does it in small quantity though. When I joined her in the business in 2017, there’s already a huge bit of comfort, because we ground with an electric engine, which saves money (Fuel, Oil, servicing).
Due to the large quantity we do produce, I spend roughly about 7-8 hours grinding.
…. about 1 hour to sieve. I own a grinding machine and it’s an added advantage. After sieving off the chaff it can be recreated into cash, because of its widespread use in poultry and diary farming. A 100Kg bag goes for like 6-7,000 naira.
You soak the grains( maize and Guinea corn) in water for about 3-4 days to get the right texture for the grinding process.
If you’re a youth and you’re complaining of no work, you can take this up and keep yourself busy, if you can afford. My mum helps in selling after I have finished the production.
There’s nothing too small to start, I’m looking forward in exporting pap one day, whereby I will have dehydrator and other necessary machines and equipments.It’s never a thing of shame to hype your hustle, once it brings money and pays your bills.
