This beautiful couple, Mr & Mrs Ogunlayi, are a living example that disability is not a curse. A good Samaritan (Mr Asuokka) shared their story online with the hopes of encouraging people to patronize their bead making business. Read what he wrote after the cut.

"I would like to tell you guys about two wonderful people I meet yesterday, their names are Mr Jimoh Ogunlayi and Mrs Bridget ogunlayi, and they are both blind but happy couples. They got married in 2014 and very productive even in their state they make a lot of nice things with beads like Bags, Lamp Holder, Flower vase, Flower pot, fruit basket etc

"Mr Jimoh Ogunlayi is a graduate of SPED Oyo with a degree in visual Impaired/social studies; he lost his sight in 1993 due to an accident. interestingly he was the one that fixed the wiring and bulbs to the lamp holders by himself

"Mrs Bridget Ogunlayi is a graduate of computer science from the University of Nigeria Nsukka, she lost her sight in 2008 due to a drug reaction. They learnt how to make all this from the Nigerian Farm Craft Center for the Blind Isheri Olofin Powerline Lagos.
