Abigail Gyanwah: Young UCC Graduate who Started Sewing to Avoid Unemployment now owns 2 Businesses
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Abigail Gyanwah, a young lady who graduated from the University of Cape Coast in 2018, now runs two startups Shefata Clothing and Braids and Cuts Palace, which have a total of about 10 employees.
Speaking to YEN.com.gh, Abigail indicates that she decided to start something for herself when she was only in level 200 in the university because of the high unemployment rate in the country.
"Although my mother was not in full support at the time because she wanted me to focus on my studies, I still persevered and learned on YouTube how I could sew dresses myself. But now, she is proud of me," Abigail recalls.
