A Ghanaian basic school teacher who doubles as a Youtuber with the name Mena Esi has revealed in a Youtube video that, her low salary as a teacher caused her to look for other streams of income to sustain her lifestyle.
In the video, Mena stated that she decided to go into the selling of kente and see if it works out.
Getting the idea
Given the fact that teachers’ salaries are nothing to write home about, she thought of ways to go into a business where she would only have to invest little to no money.

Pitching the idea
The young teacher said she spotted a few kente shops around her and came to an agreement with them where she’d take pictures of the kente fabrics, post them online and get clients for the shops.
Mena said she increases the price of the fabrics she posted by a little amount so she could also make her cut.
With excitement, she said her plan worked very well and she was able to make Ghc 9000 in just her first month of starting her side hustle.
She advised individuals with low salaries or with no income stream at all to adopt her structure for other types of businesses to help earn something for themselves.
