- Akua Safomaa, a young graduate of Holy Trinity High School is now into cabbage-selling business to fund herself through tertiary education
- The young lady, who works the business with her brother, said she is able to make a profit of GHc 100 (N6,620.75) daily which she wants to accrue until it is enough to fund her
- However, any help from well-meaning persons who might want to support her nursing ambition would be welcomed
Akua Safomaa, a young Ghanaian high school graduate is defying odds by engaging in the sale of cabbage in order to gather money and fund herself through tertiary institution.
In an interview with SVTV Africa sighted by Legit.ng on the official YouTube channel of the organisation, Akua indicated that she graduated from high school in 2019.
According to the hardworking young lady, she has since been unable to enroll in a tertiary school because of a lack of money, as her grades are excellent.
Watch the full interview below:
Akua further mentioned that she now runs a cabbage selling business with her brother, and is able to make a profit of GHc 100 a day, which she hopes to accrue until it is enough to send her to school.
In answer to a curious question, Akua said she knows very well that there are ladies out there who sell their bodies indirectly to men in order to make money.
"I am not into that because I believe in myself that I can work and get whatever I want in life and I also don't want a bad name for myself."
So far, Akua, who graduated from Holy Trinity High School, has been into the cabbage-selling business for two months and would appreciate any support to fund her nursing training education.
