Ejiro Osibi is an indigene of Isoko South LGA of Delta State indigene from a low income, relatively large family.

After she graduated from high school in 2017, the twenty-one-year-old, unable to further her education, opted to learn a skill in order to contribute to the upkeep of her household. In 2019, she was identified for livelihood assistance by Caritas Nigeria local field agents in her community, who, immediately, recommended her for the GIZ intervention implemented by Caritas Nigeria.

Accordingly, Ejiro was trained on hairdressing and thereafter, was provided with hairdressing business tools such as a generator set, hair dryer, hair washing stand, cash support of NGN20,000, and six-months shop rent. Her father, a farmer, overcome with excitement, further equipped his daughter’s shop. Sadly, Ejiro’s joy was cut short by the sudden demise of her beloved father a month after her establishment in 2020.

Ejiro’s determination and firm resolve to support her household spurred her to quickly pull through her sorrow as she was soon to realize over NGN30,000 from her craft during the yuletide. She has since restocked her shop with hair accessories and plans to extend her rent for another six months. The promising young girl would cease every opportunity to express her contentment and gratitude for her fruitful livelihood made possible by GIZ through Caritas Nigeria.
