Salamatu Abubakari, a Ghanaian mother of three children has revealed that she has been working as a car sprayer for a total of 20 years.
The woman who appears to be in her mid-30s recounted her amazing life story in a video interview sighted by YEN.com.gh on SV TV Africa.
According to her, the trade is admittedly male-dominated and she faced several challenges along the way, but gladly, she is also a master in it now.
Watch the interview below:
Salamatu mentioned that when she finished junior high school, there was no money to further her education and so she was advised by her elder sister to enter the trade.
"In the beginning, I hated the job because there was only one other lady where I worked and the job was quite demanding for a lady. Many people told me I cannot give birth and still have the strength to work," she recounts.
However, after going 20 years with three children, Salamatu has clearly defied all odds and still goes about the business to support her family.
Before concluding, the lady mentioned that her biggest challenge has been to deal with endless proposals from men.
