How Cosmas Maduka Start His Car Business With N200 Naira

MY WIFE’S UNCLE SHOT ME BECAUSE I WAS
WOOING HER WHEN I HAD NOTHING, BUT SHE
LATER HELPED TO BUILD THE COSCHARIS
Group. By Cosmas Maduka
Her parents actually shot me. I can say that
because the uncle shot me three times. This is
not an exaggerated story. It was a real story -
the uncle shot me with a gun.
She has been very helpful and instrumental in my
success. The time I married her, I was really a
strong, young man fighting to survive. I had just
parted ways with my brother. I ventured into
importation and the first consignment went wrong
and I lost my capital.
But, I am a very determined individual. I believe in
dignity in labour. For instance, somebody who
came to our wedding gave us a weighing scale.
One day, things got so hard that I took it to the
market and got people to weigh themselves for a
fee. I was collecting 10 Kobo from each
customer. I came back with some money and my
wife wanted to know what I did, and I told her.
She cried like a little baby. Later, to support me,
she dusted her certificate and got a job where
they were paying her N85. She would bring the
money every month to keep us going and we did
that until things got better again for me. So, she
was my first employee. When you see the name
Coscharis, it means Cosmas and Charity
combined. So we own the company together
because we built it together. She married me
when I was driving a motorbike. She came to me
when I had nothing. So, whatever I make today,
she is my first employee and whenever I went to
Japan, she stayed in the shop.
Those days when things were hard for us, I used
to ask her to give me a list whenever it was time
to give her money to cook soup. I never gave her
money without seeing her list. When she returned
the week after for money for another soup, I
would say ‘write another list.’ Then, I would bring
out the former list to compare with the new one.
And, if I saw a bottle of oil, I would ask, ‘you
bought oil last week, why are you writing oil
again?’ Then she would ask me if oil had become
Coca-cola that she could drink. That was the
level of poverty and training. But she had learnt
from all of those things, and today she can sign a
cheque of N10 billion and her credit card has no
limit.
