Nichols Anaba, a 36-year-old WASSCE certificate holder, is making great economic gains with his business through smart, innovative branding to advertise the sales of his head load of hard-boiled eggs.
Always dressed in a decent black suit with a tie to match, Nichols Anaba, makes daily sales of 8 crates of boiled eggs.
Nichols Anaba neatly packs the boiled eggs in a white transparent plastic bowl with a fitting lid and the ‘barima kosua label’ to ply his trade.
Anaba’s numerous clients, mostly traders along the Atimatim, Pakrono, Ahwiaa and Tafo vicinities in Kumasi, where he plies his trade, always wait for him in the mornings to get their daily portions to add to their breakfast.
The boiled eggs, with an accompaniment of hot spicy scotch bonnet pepper sauce, also goes as delicious snacks for some of his customers, both the elderly and young ones. “Even adults watching their diets buy my egg, because it is boiled and not fried with oil,” Anaba tells the GNA.
Anaba tells the Ghana News Agency that he makes as much as between GH¢ 120.00 – GH¢ 180.00 profit a day amounting to a minimum of GH¢ 2,500. 00, a month.
He stands out to prove his other colleagues wrong and advises them to stop depending solely on the government for jobs instead of using their own initiatives to find jobs to do
After completing the SHS education in Ghana Senior High School (GHANASCO) in Tamale and with no help from his parents to continue his education, Anaba came to the south to look for a job.
He was fortunate to be employed as a pupil teacher in one of the popular private schools in Kumasi.
After few years, through hard work and humility, his proprietor promoted him to become the headteacher.
But he would soon quit and go into bread-making because life was still tough for him with meagre salary.
Anaba was compelled to quit the bread business again because it had become too competitive with so many people joining the business.
He reveals he wants to expand his current business to employ more people to do the selling like''Adinkra Pie'', is doing
