Here’s a Smart Way to Save!

‘This year, I must save!’. That was the lone entry in Abel’s diary for January 1, 2023. Indeed, it was the same entry for every January 1 for the past four years of his life. Each year, he never made it past March; life always connived with his acquaintances to mess him up. Last year, he started well. He joined an ‘esusu’ of 12 people and contributed Fifty Thousand Naira every month. Everything went smoothly until it was his turn at the pool in March. Suddenly, Fatai, one of the twelve contributors, lost his great grandmother and needed urgent cash to settle his part of the funeral expenses. Then Angela, another of the twelve, needed to pay her rent urgently and begged Abel to let her skip payment till August, her turn.

The ‘esusu’ collapsed and with it his resol...Read more

After all, children should never stop learning. We have compiled a list of ways to make the summer fun and educative for your wards: Cooking and Baking: Maybe now is the time to teach them some culinary skills especially if your kids are old enough to handle kitchen-related activities. Pick a day, preferably a day you’d be home, and take them through the basics of cooking one of their favourite meals. Involve them in the entire process and stand back, watch them replicate what you have done. Before you know it, their culinary competence would shoot through the roof. Create a treasure hunt: Design a simple treasure map and hand it to them. Hide some things of interest around the house and give them a time frame to search for those ‘treasures’. The more they are able...Read more
