Ghanaian business founder Ebenezer Boadi has disclosed that he started his bookstore with GH¢300 as he recalled how he started the business in 2016.
The University of Ghana alumnus remembers borrowing GH¢500 from his mother to start the venture.
How it all started
Boadi said he gave GH¢200 to a supplier to import books to help him commence the business, but the books have yet to arrive.
''So, I started Inquiring Minds Bookstore with GH¢300 in November 2016; our best marketing strategy was to move from office to office, helping people to get Christian books and Bibles,'' he said in a post on Instagram.
Before establishing his business, he quit his administrator position at a hospital to start selling books.
Boadi is a former SDA Senior High School student in Kenyasi-Kumasi, where he emerged as one of the best students in the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
He headed to the university to specialise in Health Service Administration. His journey to starting a book venture has inspired many.
