I Started my cleaning business with N4500 and make a profit of N500- Moyo Jegede
Moyo Doing what she loves best. Cleaning 
My name is Moyo Jegede Abatan , owner of CleanClear Services, a cleaning service outfit based in Lagos.

What we do:
Cleaning service (House,Compound,Industrial,fumigation)
Fumigation
House moving.
Housemaid service
After party clean up
Pre and after Event cleaning.
How I started :
When I  lost my twin kids ,they died at premature at 5months. I was devastated and always went to the altar to pray and sleep. I started sweeping the church.
I told a friend I wanted to start a business she said what do I enjoy doing? I answered cleaning, so she encouraged me to start the business which  I did and here we are today. I have never regretted my decision.
My experience and challenge in the cleaning business:
At the initial stage when I started,
it wasnt easy at first ....but I kept asking GOD for directions
My first job was a viewing centre, I was paid 4500 and had a gain of 500 after paying back cash that was borrowed  to buy all I needed.
I  remember crying so badly but I was undettered, so i sat down , thought of new means of gaining publicity  and make my business grow , I  started posting  on social media...shared fliers around ...told a friend to tell a friend. 

Surprisingly the jobs started coming and took away my deep thoughts and worries.
I have done some jobs in lekki,ikeja, surulere, that's where the bulk of my clients are. Ikeja and Surulere. I am hopeful more in other locations will come.
I do mostly houses,sometimes I go to job sites to supervise, other times I join in. I usually collect half payment before the job and the balance after the job has been completed and customer satisfied. I pay my workers immediately on that same day .
As an aspiring entrepreneur, some months I get jobs, other months are less busy but I keep praying ,staying positive and hustle on.
All I  strive to do is be independent take care of my mum,family and make a positive impact.
There is an inner happiness I have that I cant  express when I realize I can be financially independent not relying on anyone for money.
In all I am grateful to GOD and my husband  for the journey so far.

I told you then about my finances and that I want to get busy too. You told me to consider cleaning job, that that's what you do too. I though and prayed about it. I thought about it but didn't eventually do it. Instead, I went to a fashion school and today I am a professional designer. Today, wherever I see a cleaning outfit, you come to my mind.
