However, not everyone can do that due to the country's low salaries and general economic hardship.

Joseph Mensah is a second-hand jeans seller in Accra who came to Ghana's capital in 2016 to find a job since he could not further his education.

Joseph recounted in an interview with GhanaWeb TV that in his early days in Accra, he earned GH¢10 a day for working. He realized the money was not enough and decided to sell second-hand jeans. According to him, he now makes GH¢300 daily from his sales.
