Mrs. Sukurat Laguda Adelodun, a Social Entrepreneur passionate about women /girlchild empowerment. A Lagosian married to an Ilorin indigene. The state ambassador of Mumprenuer.ng
She is into pure coconut oil production and sales of dried sea foods like dried prawns, Bonga fish as well as sales of fresh seafood on request. Our prices are affordable and our delivery service is excellent. Her mini factory is at her parents’ home in Lagos. The idea came to be, to create employment opportunities for some village women and men she worked with in Badagry. She also wanted to meet the immediate need and ease the stress off her clients from getting worked up trying to produce coconut oil and bringing sea foods to their people here in Ilorin with the assurance than they don’t have to be in Lagos to enjoy fresh or dried sea foods. And she is glad that she has been able to win the hearts of some people and hoping to get more customers and referrals with time.
Her mission is to strengthen the bond between families and friends through her products as well as easing the stress off families by making these products accessible and affordable to them anywhere they are. She creates awareness through social media marketing, referrals, word of mouth and at networking events. Her major aim is to create and strengthen family bonds with recipes from her products while making it readily available irrespective of the distance or location of our client. We look forward to reaching like a thousand family in 8months through our products. The way their services and deliveries are been carried out makes their services unique.
Her passion and love for women as well as love for sea foods made her choose the line of business but she discovered there is a big difference when she got married and relocated to Ilorin from Lagos and all those free seafood she loved is not easily accessible so she spoke with few of her friends and decided to give it a try. Same applies to coconuts, her love for Badagry and coconuts gave birth to SENA Foods Nigeria. She said the skills needed to be an entrepreneur, are the ability to solve a problem with an idea, create employment opportunities and avenue for collaboration or skills acquisition for others. The fact that she is solving a problem and also creating an avenue for others to survive is enough motivation for her. So, when she is patronized, they are impacting lives with that patronage.
She described her life as an entrepreneur, “to be an entrepreneur is no joke, especially when you’re a mumprenuer. It’s a challenge, an examination I hope to pass out in flying colors because I know am not perfect and if we don’t quit or give up, there’s always a greater room for improvement”.
She advised all entrepreneurs to never give up, that they are not making great sales, keep toiling and also improve their self while they do so, “attend events, read books, and build relationships because it helps a lot on this journey!”
