A social media user identified as Agbalenyo Nelson has recounted the struggles of a Ghanaian roasted plantain seller after he successfully graduated from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).
Agbalenyo Nelson disclosed in a post on social media that the married father of four kids struggled with unemployment after several submitted application letters yielded no results.
He revealed the man was compelled to figure out a niche to provide for himself and that led him to begin a plantain roasting business.
Agbalenyo shared a photo of the man in suit and a Ghana themed flying tie while roasting plantain on fire.
While his current trade is greatly dominated by women in the country, he has already carved a thriving business for himself.
And to the toils of many Ghanaians with dreams, the father of two is working hard to attain economic independence.
''I am a businessman who is married with four kids and has completed his senior high school and my tertiary education at KNUST successful but with no job I have also submitted my applications to so many company's in Ghana but none of them offer me a job then,'' Agbalenyo Nelson wrote in a post on Facebook.
''I decided creates a job on my own here I am selling plantain at the roadside with all the kind of certificate have my first class in marketing, first in economics etc, just to take care of my family for it's my prayer that one day I will get a different job because it was my dream to become a politicians and I strongly believe that my dream must come to past,'' he added.
