Kwarapreneur had an interesting interview with Miss Babawale Dorcas Olamide an entrepreneur and owner of Royalty organic cosmetic products, so we interviewed her to get an insight into her life as an entrepreneur, what it has been like working as an entrepreneur and any advice she has for other budding entrepreneurs.

Q: About yourself (name and where from).
My name is Babawale Dorcas Olamide. I am from Ibadan, Oyo state, Nigeria.
Q: What product or services you offer or manufacture?
I produce a wide range of organic cosmetic products which includes coconut oil (for several health benefits for aged adults and newborns), carrot oil (for even skin tone, clearing scars and dark spots), guava leaves and onion oil (for hair growth), organic black soap (for various skin problems and maintenance). I also sell first grade (UK used) clothes at affordable prices.
Q: How did you get the idea or concept for the business?
The idea came when I bought a fake organic product because I have always had affinity for organic and natural products especially for the fear of cancer. After the purchase of the fake product I decided to do it for myself and for people around me to save them from the stress I went through then, and with time it became a business. The first grade business idea came when I was in the university and I needed to look good at an affordable rate hence my choice of fairly used items then I started selling too. I turned my passion to making money
