Afiba decided to use the reintegration amount to pay for a computer engineering training, that will help him to set up a small computer engineering shop.

Afiba came to Egypt in 2012, after finishing his high school in Nigeria, to study in the University. Afiba was always dreaming to go back to his family and visit them but unfortunately, he couldn’t he had to finish his studies first.

After finishing his studies at the university, he approached IOM to assist him to return back to his home country. Eligible for Assisted Voluntary Return and Reintegration, he returned to Nigeria in April 2017 and was provided with reintegration amount to start his life.

Afiba wanted to continue his studies and to have a masters degree, but he decided to use the reintegration grant in a manner that will help him to sustain himself and hopefully his family financially.

Afiba decided to use the reintegration amount to pay for a computer engineering training, that will help him to set up a small computer engineering shop. Besides the training, he decided to pay for the rent of his house for six months, the training duration.

IOM visited Afiba and he benefited from the training and he is now exploring the opportunity to open the planned shop to start gaining profit.
