Whether 1gh cedis or not, he used it wisely, and he's where he is today, period! Instead of listening to what wisdom is saying, you are debating the value of the money then and now. SMH May God have Mercy on us. Those who have ears, let them listen!

Emmanuel Hammond said:

Thank you, mister Tobinco. Is it not time to show the youth how to start a business in Ghana? Although I don't believe what they always say, I can bet my last, without a godfather who can hold your hands to direct you, it will be difficult.

Qheen Abena Daamoa posted:

One day, when I also say I started my restaurant with one bag of rice, people won't believe it, but that is it

Naturebeauty indicated:

Men of little faith. Why don't you believe he started his business with only 1 cedi?

Wise Born commented:

Now, his story makes sense to me. He didn't get to where he is with just that 1cedis but travelled outside to work hard. He saved enough money and then came back to invest it.
