Isaac said when he got to Malmö, a city in Sweden, he remembered that he could trim hair and hence decided to focus on that as a job.

Quizzed on how life is treating him as a barber abroad, Isaac said the job rewards him handsomely.

He explained that he charges 200 krona, the equivalent of 230 cedis per haircut.

“For this job, if I tell you the job is not lucrative I will be lying. Working as a barber is profitable. Even as we are talking see the number of people waiting outside just to get their hair trimmed,” he said.

He added, “because of the job I am able to remit money to my dad every two weeks. My dad always tells me that if not for the fact that I travelled, he might have passed on by now”.

Isaac concluded by advising anyone with an interest to travel abroad to do so because the living conditions in Europe were much better compared to Ghana.
