"Some of us live paycheck to paycheck. So it is difficult to call people at home since they may ask for money and we don't have. We also have problems," Rosina added.

On the challenges she faces in the UK, Rosina said she has no complaints and is thankful she has a job.

"I don't understand what Ghanaians mean when they say life is difficult abroad. Aside from having to get up at daybreak, I'm not sure what they mean."

She indicated that most Ghanaians who travel to the UK are stingy because of the enormous taxes and bills they have to pay.
