Yvonne's Feet manufactures all kinds of footwear including Brogues, Sandals and Slip-on for both sexes. The Delta State born entrepreneur decried lack of funds to procure some important machines as some of her biggest challenges.

I desire the assistance of the Edo State government and other well meaning Nigerians to procure a filing machine, leather sewing machine, branding machine and to rent secure a shop in a good location in the City.

She further explained that she also engages in other jobs to make ends meet.

I work with an event management company on part time basis and I also teach in Primary School to raise funds, but the machines are very expensive," she further explained.

The start up company is currently training a couple of apprentices in the lucrative profession
of shoe making.
