Amira Nana Agyeman defied several odds to acquire a license to drive Ayalolo, a feat that is uncommon among women.
Driving huge commuter buses is a male-dominated area as it involves intense stress and effort. Nana Agyeman has proven with her courage that it is possible for ladies to flood the job area too.
Life was tough for Nana as she grew up from a very humble background. She grew up in a Zongo community and lived with a single parent.

As one of eight children, she has had to learn how to handle her own financial affairs and take up part of a parent's duties by supporting the family.
She resorted to selling sugar cane and sachet water. Life still got no better and Nana Agyemang decided to travel outside the country in search of greener pastures as an immigrant in a foreign country.
Realizing the danger that many commuters had to go through, Nana shelved that idea.
