Aniema Edem runs Rasa Venture, a frozen food and ice business.
Aniema was a contractor living in Lagos, working for ExxonMobile. She used to travel home to this area to visit her aging parents and she noticed that the convenient frozen food, widely available in Lagos, were not available in Uyo. She saw a gap in the market and decided to establish her business.
She is a member of a women’s business group and through them heard about Youth for Technology's training and the business support text messaging service.
The main things she learnt from the training was around risk management and from the text messaging it was around staff management.
