The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Emma’s Stuffed Toys, Emma Biney, has opened up about her only wish she wants to see fulfilled before she dies.
In an interview on Monday, September 24, 2018, she stated that “I want to impart the knowledge to people because I’m 83 years and very soon my maker will call me and I don’t want to go into my grave with my knowledge.”
Although she began making stuffed toys in 1959, she disclosed that she was yet to train a single person in the art.
According to her, people always express interest in learning it but get discouraged once they dig their hands into it.
“They like quick money, and this business, too, it’s not a quick-money business; you have to take time. It needs patience, time and interest. If you have no interest, time and patience you can’t do this kind of job,” she said.
She further revealed that she made stuffed toys to support her husband to cater for the house and the education of her children.
Biney revealed that she got into making the toys while she was training in Home Economics, as part of a government initiative training programme of the then-Department of Social Welfare and Community Development.
She stocked up the then-Kingsway and UTC department stores in Accra, as well as other individually-owned shops where she sold a lot of her creations.
