JOURNEY TO FINANCIAL FREEDOM
It was in 1990 that High Chief NNAMDI NWOSU was brought to Cameroon by a prominent Nigerian businessman residing in Bamenda, Mr. Henry AGINWA. In the very early years of his life, he served as a sales boy in Mr. AGINWA’s shops in the Bamenda Main Market and at the Commercial Avenue.
Though from a very humble background, the young NNAMDI showed strong signs of smartness, diligence and honesty in his service to his Master; coupled with the fact that Mr. AGINWA’s business flourished under his stewardship, High Chief NNAMDI NWOSU rightly talked his Master into venturing in the building material supply business where he flourished, guiding their first building material shop (Quincaillerie de l’Afrique) to unprecedented heights.
Though he was given the sum of 350,000 Cfa francs as settlement in 1996, High Chief NNAMDI NWOSU, continued to serve his master in a bid to raise more money to begin his own business with.
The years that followed 1996 were the toughest for him as he struggled through very serious hurdles in order to achieve his goals in life; he had to trek for very long distances, carrying very heavy materials purchased from Nigeria, and destined for the Cameroonian market, going through thick forests and crossing big rivers along the Cameroon-Nigeria border in order to get to Ekok and then to the urban areas of Cameroon where the goods are to be sold.
This journey was never an easy one, as many trders who tried the same route, either got very sick or died in the process; but thanks to his persistence and faith in God, High Chief NNAMDI NWOSU, successfully raised money he needed to begin his on business, and eventually left his Master in Bamenda for Yaounde.
After a slow start in his personal business, High Chief NNAMDI NWOSU, surmounted all hurdles and eventually became successful in the building material supply business; he now supplies all over Cameroon and in most Central African countries, and unlike before when he used to import goods only from Nigeria, he now travels to China, as he strives to diversify his business.
