A Nigerian student, Vivian Unigwe, is being hailed on social media after she presented her parents a new house in their home town in Anambra state.
The 400-level undergraduate of Abia state university, built the house from foundation level till its completion with one goal – to change the living condition of her family.
She revealed that she told her father when she was in 200-level that she will build him a house in Ukpor and her father believed in her dreams because he knew God was in control.
Vivian, 23, said raising the money to finance the building project was not a herculean task because she has been supporting her clergy father financially from her second year in University.
According to the industrious lady, she has engaged in numerous businesses from cake baking to product distribution, importation and even student union politics.
Whenever a business venture was no longer profitable, she would look for another business opportunity to invest her time and resources in.
“My 400 level
“I engaged in another business after the lockdown!
“I engaged my self in importation business, which I saved enough money to plaster the house! As I noticed the business isn’t giving me money again, I engaged in another business, I sell natural hair products I use on my natural hair!
“I got the products from the company directly and I resell it in a whole sell price
“I became one of the distributor of the company, and sell to sub distributor and retails,” she said.
Vivian also narrated how she was mocked for not being able to own an iPhone even though she sold iPhones. She noted noted that at the time, she could afford to buy any iPhone model of her choice, but refused to get one because the housing project was her priority.
In her words;
“When I started this project! I first sent money to get the roof, which they did and we later realized that the place we kept the roof isn’t good because there isn’t money to roof it at that moment!
“Whenever rain fails, it affects the roof and the roof began to rust.
And we also found out that the quality of the roof inferior. So when I got money to roof the building, I had no other option than to make use of the same roof!
That’s why it’s like this and the roof isn’t this foreign roof that’s in the market now.”
The young lady who expressed joy that her entire family will now have a place to stay and spend festive periods in their village, added that she still has more plans for the house because there are still pending tasks to be completed on it.
