Nigeria

Turning tables on female boundaries

Take us back to the beginning

Being a woman entrepreneur in an industry largely dominated by men can be daunting. But not for Lucy Agwunobi, the co-founder of Arredo by TRT – a Nigerian company that designs and manufactures high-end furniture. It was the thrill of breaching uncommon boundaries that first attracted Agwunobi to study architecture and to later start her own business in the male-dominated furniture industry.

At age 36, this Nigerian already has a lifetime of business successes and scars to show

by 

Aigbe Omoregie has had a passion for business since a young age. He was only 13 when he began selling eggs from his uncle’s poultry farm close to Benin City, the capital of Edo State in southern Nigeria. He started out shifting about 10 crates of eggs a week to various outlets, but eventually grew that number up to 1,000, with seven people working for him. The business lasted all through his secondary school years. “Before I got admission into Auchi Polytechnic (situated in Edo State), I told my parents I was just going to school to earn a degree because I wasn’t going to use it to search for jobs. I knew I was going to be an entrepreneur,” says Omoregie, who is now 36 years old and the managing director of Intercontinental Paint Limited, a Lagos-based paint manufacturing company. During his first year in college, Omoregie sold used clothes, bags and shoes to students; the following year he added typewriters and desktop computers to his product range.
