A young Ghanaian lady who works as a mobile money vendor has now become a source of motivation to many after she opened up on her hustle.
Mansura Tijani Umar, speaking in an interview with Joy News, said she decided to go into the mobile money business after her quest to secure a job with her certificates proved futile.
"Some people were demanding GH¢10,000 and GH¢15,000 from me. It even got to a point that I got an appointment letter, which tend out to be fake,” she said.
The university graduate with two master's degrees said after that experience she resorted to the mobile money business and was delighted she did so because she is now able to fend for herself.

Ghanaians react to the video of the young lady
Many people who reacted to the video were stunned that a lady with two master's degrees could not secure an office job.
Y’all should understand at this age that,school doesn’t guarantee you a job.I t only prepare you for the market or business world.
How do you go for two masters in hope of someone employing you?
I hope they did not study political science. The market is not looking for a political science graduate. Study employable course students, my advice.
