CN: How would you describe your business?

August Secrets Nigeria is a Nigerian online baby and toddler food solutions company. We make homemade cereals for babies 6 months to 5 years. We recently launched our recipe book.

CN: What inspired you to start August Secrets?

I had my son abroad and bought all sorts of premade baby food, but when the baby clocked 6 months, he rejected them all. I tried locally-made, fresh homemade food for him and he took them and grew healthier, so I started sharing my recipes and foods with other mothers.

CN: How did you raise capital for the business?

I used my personal savings.

CN: What’s your unique selling point?

Our recipes and method of operations are creative.

CN: How would you rate the customer satisfaction level?

Our customers love our openness and realness. We are a growing brand, so we try to admit our mistakes.

CN: What’s the most challenging part of being an entrepreneur, for you?

Sleepless nights. There is always something to do. A task to complete.

CN: What role does the internet play in growing your business?

A big role. We sell online.

CN: What have been your greatest achievements in this line of business?

Publishing our own recipe book.

CN: What’s your long-term vision for August Secrets?

We hope to have our own chain of manufacturing outfits that can produce foods to feed African children.
