CAN WE MEET YOU?
My name is Adenagbe Hannah Adebolanle, a 300 level student in the department of Biology Adeyemi College of Education Ondo city.
YOU ARE THE BRAIN BEHIND DEBOLA ALATA, CAN YOU TELL US WHAT THIS IS ALL ABOUT?
It is an online market where people place their order for fresh peppers, tomatoes, vegetables and other soup ingredients to be delivered to them in the comfort of their houses.
HOW DID THIS ALL START?
Actually, it was August 2017. I heard a student sitting behind me say she was too tired to cook talk less of going to the market that, she rather take beverages for dinner. Even though it was none of my business, i still jokingly suggest to her to order from Jumia. Afterwards, i thought about having my own 'jumia' too.
WHAT WERE THE DISCOURAGEMENTS AND HICCUPS YOU FACED AT THE START?
Indecision and fear. Something in me was telling me to start and another was telling me not to. i remember when i first started by creating a Whatsapp broadcast group, i was scared about what people will think of it.
WHAT HAS THE RECEPTION BEEN SO FAR?
It has been so good. Never knew it would be this acceptable.
HOW DO YOU MANAGE STUDIES AND THIS ONLINE BUSINESS?
It is a weekend business, to save people the stress of going to the market during weekends so as to relax and enjoy their weekends. So basically, i face my studies during the week.
HOW DO YOU RUN THE BUSINESS? IS IT PAY BEFORE OR AFTER DELIVERY?
The order is placed 5 hours before delivery. Delivery starts 12pm, and its payment on delivery.
HOW THEN DO YOU MAKE SOME INCOME FROM THIS?
This is from delivery as well as service fee. The service fee which is into two category; home services and parties is fixed while delivery fee is based on distance.
DO YOU HAVE PLANS TO STOP AFTER YOU GRADUATE?
No. i want to make progress in it, and expand it in a bigger way.
THANKS FOR YOUR TIME MISS BOLANLE.
It is a pleasure.
