Entrepreneurship is an important factor in the development of any nation. Entrepreneurs are responsible for taking calculated risks that open up doors to progressively higher levels of economic growth. If it weren’t for them, the world would never have known such marvels as the wheel, electricity or the Internet, to name just a few.
In an exclusive interview with the spokesperson of the Nigeria Self Help Group Initiative, Adetutu Ashiru, the need for a revolution in self-determination became more imperative for all stakeholders of Nigeria’s economy to consider and amplify so as to reduce the teeming dependency on government for job creation.

Imagine a training that supposes to cost a hundred thousand has been duly negotiated and bargained to a token with still the same quality.

For the unemployed, we train you as guerrilla marketers and customer service officers in order to prepare you for a job opening and also to make you a freelancer (product for you to sell and earn your commission). Don’t forget RMCL is an outsourcing company too.
