-By Gertrude Onyekachukwu-UTEH:
SENGE PERE is a beneficiary of the Delta State Government’s Skills Training and Entrepreneurship Programme (STEP) in the 2016/2017 cycle. He was trained and established in Decoration and Event Management. He hails from Patani Local Government Area. Pere Senge is the CEO of Senge Perez Concept in Patani.
Five years after establishment, the business has grown remarkably. He has acquired additional equipment and materials to boost his enterprise, and to make his services attractive to his rising clientele profile. He is basically into rental services and decoration.
“I have covered lots of ceremonies. I have trained three persons and currently have three trainees who assist me to execute my jobs. Being a beneficiary of STEP has improved my finances by 100% because I know where I am coming from.
I have acquired more material and equipment to attract more patronage. I have learnt that one needs patience to grow a business. Everyone needs a skill and it is rewarding if one persists. I appreciate Governor Okowa for taking me off the street to become a boss of my own.
Now, I can fend for myself and for my family.”
