Our Top 5 Bumpa Success Stories!
1. MiwaBeauty Store:

With a true passion for beauty products and skincare, the MiwaBeauty store is making authentic skincare products easily accessible to people in Ibadan. Founder, Ayotomiwa Wahab tells us about how the brand was established because of her love for skincare and her battle with skincare problems and most importantly, to bridge the gap in making these products readily available for people in Ibadan.

Her business which was started with her NYSC “allawee” has since grown into a brand that is known for providing unforgettable experiences, and building a community of happy, healthy customers. Hitting over 2,000 orders monthly, they have implemented the use of the online business app Bumpa, to streamline their process and manage orders without any challenges.

2. Kay’s Perfumery:

Kay’s Perfumery was built based on one philosophy; to create allergen-free products, allowing people to enjoy pleasant scents without triggering their allergies. The founder, Dr Kedei Ibiang’s personal experience with allergies and the need for alternatives sparked the idea for Kay’s Perfumery in 2018.

Starting with perfume oils and then expanding into scented candles, diffusers, and room sprays, the brand has always shown its dedication to meeting the varied needs of its customers. The business thrives on the power of community and amazing service, thereby making sure that its customers are always locked in and never go anywhere else.

They have also grown extensively, from being just online to opening up a physical store in Abuja, and count a lot on Bumpa’s inventory manager to help them manage their stock from both their online and offline stores.

4. MTL Hair & Wig Care:

For the founder of MTL Hair & Wig Care, Miracle Sambo, the story is relatable on two fronts: she’s a student who also runs a business on the side, and she eventually decided to start her business with what she’d saved up because trying to save up more kept costing her time, and the money she had already saved.

Armed with creativity and persistence, she began her business using drop shipping and trade fair vendors to offer budget-friendly yet high-quality wigs.

However, Miracle didn’t stop there. By saving up and investing in herself, she became the face of her brand, styling wigs and showcasing them on Instagram. Her efforts paid off, as her business grew steadily despite being in existence for roughly a year, now making a monthly profit of around 300,000 Naira and expanding to wig revamps as well.

Balancing her business and studies was challenging, but she managed by understanding her schedule, adjusting her workload accordingly and using business management apps like Bumpa to help streamline her processes.
