She said:

"My sister, for about 2 years after her national service, has been job hunting, but to no avail. She then realized that, at where we stay, breakfast is hard to come by, especially corn porridge, 'Tom brown', beverages and the likes. So she decided to venture into that aspect. And voila! Today she has started her business, and I have counted 30 people(and still counting) coming to buy from her Miriam."

Adu Asantewaa stated that the intention behind her post was to add to what the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Atta, said concerning the need for graduates to venture into entrepreneurship rather, for graduates to pay close attention to some of the problems in their community and find solutions to them.
