I build my customer base through Instagram promotions, through the promotions it gets to reach a wider audience and I get customers through it.

Speaking on the challenges he faces and how he’s been able to withstand them, he said,

Yeah there are some challenges I face, sometimes even after the promotions I still don’t get customers but patience is the key.
