How I did mine, lorry fare-300, Tithe-56, Save-100. The rest for food, I usually take my own food from home, I cook myself. No rent cos I live with my parent. But the advantage was were I did my service, got a lot of tips that sometimes I don't touch the allowance the whole month

From @PrinceBarnes12:

NSS lady who started selling as GHc559 wasn't enough now runs 2 growing start-ups

Carolina Fafanyo Ahortor, a stunning young lady who graduated from the University of Cape Coast in 2017, currently runs two fast-growing startups called CarolHandies and EdificeDecor.

Recounting her journey to YEN.com.gh, Carolina indicated that she was compelled to start doing something for herself mainly because her NSS allowance couldn't take care of all her needs.

How CarolHandies happened

I realized I was always in dept because the ¢559 salary wasn’t enough, so I felt I needed an extra source of income. I started making beaded bags, bracelets and anklets for sale. Anytime I closed from work, I would go to town to shop for materials and work on orders.
