  1. Greeting to you all. I am a young Nigerian that have zeal for production of cosmetic products. I am an indigene of Mbioto 2, Etinan, Akwa Ibom State. Reside at Eket, Akwa Ibom State all in Nigeria. The passion and zeal I have for production is of the high size. The products are: 1. AIR FRESHENER, 2. LIQUID SOAP, 3. ANTISEPTIC/BLACK SOAP, 4. LIQUID BLEACH, 5. INSECTICIDE, 6.HAIR CREAM, 7. VASELINE/POMADE. With that same move I registered my business name with CORPORATE AFFAIRS COMMISSION (CAC). In same speed somebody gave me a site to use as my factory. I make a move to consult NAFDAC, they came with a word of advice and steps to take before NAFDAC Registration Nos. will be issued to me. Since that time, the business is not moving as it suppose to move, due to lack of capital. Please, I need help from. I need GRANT for my business. Thanks.
