According to the CEO of FC Beauty Group of Companies, Grace Amey-Obeng, the decision to shut down her businesses due to Ghana's recent economic challenges has affected several of her staff.

"I have closed 80 per cent of my businesses, and I have laid off 70 per cent of staff. We are now working three days a week. The situation is too stressful. We want our Ghana back. This is not the Ghana we want. We cannot be paying people for no work done," she lamented.
