Making an honest buck in Nigeria can be frustrating. The jobs are not out there in droves and it seems there is no enabling environment to create enterprises that can bring wealth in the absence of jobs.
This article was birthed as I sat here looking for nice threads on Jumia Nigeria. I was actually looking for native attire to order but ended up stumbling on an online boutique that makes really cool T shirts. Check out their online store on Jumia Marketplace here.
Chrysolite Designs sells about 95 different graphic t shirts on Jumia, and they are some of the kind of stuff that I am into as far as tee styles go. A few of the designs are over the top for me, but a lot of them really make sense.
The owner of the store or the artist behind the T shirt designs has an eye for pop culture and is also a God lover. The designs are very witty, and seem to be selling like hotcakes.
According to Jumia, Chrysolite has had over 10,000 successful sales in its marketplace. That means at its common selling price of NGN 3500 per T shirt, this brand has made over N35 million selling tshirts. Not bad to make about $100,000 in sales just putting your ideas on t shirts and selling them on Jumia.
