Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Ghanaian entrepreneur, Iddrisu Kande, has carved a niche in a male-dominated building and supplies industry.
She runs her business called Marouf Aluminium Fabrications (MAF), a venture that deals in sliding doors and windows, louvre windows, balustrades, projected windows, partitioning, swing doors, among others.
The businesswoman has young people including men who are understudying her to become experts in framing aluminium.
Located at the Timber market off the Tema-Afienya road, she has made strides in the field.
Speaking in an interview with YEN.com.gh, Kande admitted that she has faced setbacks due to her gender, revealing that people still think that the field is a reserve of men.
''I faced some challenges when I first started but I was determined to make it. I now have people that I train. It's not easy but people have come to accept that a woman can breakthrough in a male-dominated profession,'' she said.
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh earlier reported two sisters have made themselves proud after earning degrees in Public Health and Pharmacy from the University of North Carolina in the United States of America.
In a post on Instagram by one of the sisters, Jiona Alexia, she wrote: "My sister and I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill yesterday!''
Alexia disclosed that she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Public Health while her sister, Jade, earned a Pharmacy degree.
The heated misunderstanding ensued after Shatta Wale requested an apology from the entertainment pundit, Arnold Asamoah-Baidoo after he described the dancehall musician as ''confused and inconsistent'', among other things.
Asamoah-Baidoo, however, declined because he felt he had done nothing wrong.
