Two of their children are in College and one is in Senior High School. Emmanuel started the business in 1988 selling bolts and nuts of different kinds and sizes. The products are used in the building industry, road construction and in vehicles. They have managed their business well and have even opened a second shop to increase profitability. They’ve also been able to build their own home and help pay for their children’s education. “Mission Resource has brought enormous change in our life and given us hope and joy to provide the needs of our children.” Since they are the main dealers in bolts and nuts they need to increase the different range of products and quantities they buy as well as reduce the number of times they travel to purchase which will reduce transportation costs.
