Juliet Onome is the CEO of Judos Clothing, a beneficiary of Fashion Design and Tailoring in the Delta State Government’s Skills Training and Entrepreneurship Programme (STEP) in the 2015/2016 cycle.
She hails from Okpe LGA and is a graduate of Botany, but was jobless for three years till she enrolled in STEP. She works from home, receives lots of referrals and has trained two persons. She shares her story after six years.
“After training, I went for upgrade in a fashion school before I began business officially in 2018. STEP saved me from unemployment. These four years have been good. I can now fend for myself without depending on anyone.
“I am my own model. I have lots of referrals from family and friends. I have trained two persons, acquired a stoning machine, two industrial sewing machines, an industrial iron and a big generator.”
