“When I decided to assist Olajumoke (the bread seller turned model), some people questioned my intention, but what they didn’t understand was that I saw my mother in Olajumoke; the story of a lady who left Ijebu for Lagos in search of opportunity.”
-Sijibomi Ogundele

Preparation, diligence, hard work, and consistency brought Olajumoke Orisaguna to the place of greatness. For 14 months, Olajumoke would trek for 9 hours every day selling bread, for a daily income of 7,000 naira or less.
