Diamond in The Rough: The Inspiring Story of A Paper Recycler

“My name is Babatunde Peter. I am a graduate of Osun state polytechnic. I worked with skye bank for 2 years as a contract staff before I was asked to leave

I got another job and was being paid N45,000. I was not happy but what choice did I have? One year later, a friend introduced me to paper business. He told me if I am willing to work hard I will make millions. First of all it looked like a dirty and stressful job, but 45k a month was not helping me at all

I resigned and went fully into the paper business with N5,000. I buy papers and sell to recycling factories. I wake up in the morning and go to printing press, banks and industries to ask for waste papers. I make friends with the lower staff so I can get cheaper price

Gradually I started making contacts. Indians started depositing N2-3million in my account to get papers for them to recycle. The least I have made in a long time is N300,000 a month (after all my expenses)

It is not an easy job but people see how hard I work and they have started trusting me with their money. Now I use other people’s money to make money. Things are getting better, I am saving, maybe one day, I’ll have my own paper recycling factory” – Babatunde Peter
