Diamond Bank BET is something that still looks like a dream to me. Before the program, I was running my leather shoe business from my parent’s compound with just a stitching machine and one production person; we were producing an average of 4 shoes per week. I joined BET and it exposed me to the real way a successful business should be run. The seed capital from Diamond Bank greatly improved my business; I added 6 extra machines to my business and employed 5 more people. We increased production to about 50 pairs of foot wears per week and 200-350 shoes every month. The great thing is that you don’t need to know anyone before being selected into the BET program
