Patoranking, the oldest of 4, was raised in a small slum in Lagos, Nigeria known as Ilaje. His family lived in extreme poverty as his parents struggled to put food on the table. By the age of 13, Patoranking began to “hawk”—selling of various goods to passengers on traffic-clogged roads. He wanted desperately to move his family out of the ghetto, in hopes of providing a better environment for his siblings to grow up in and a more comfortable life for his parents.| | | Next → | Single Page
