In a recent interview with SVTV Africa, the young lady recounted that she had initially wanted to be in the military or with the fire service after her secondary education, but due to 'who knows who' she missed out on that.

Ajara said she continued with the job hunt there after all to no avail and finally resorted to selling boiled eggs on the street.

She was later introduced to the selling of coins by one of her friends, and decided to give it a try. Selling coins to 'trotro' mates is what she currently does and has been able to make a profit of Ghc5000 in a year with a starting capital of Ghc 500.
