To the casual observor, the Ghanaian kiosk is the home of the Ghanaian informal worker (traders and hawkers) who is little-educated and wants to make an honest living out of the skills he or she possesses.
To the discerning observor, the kiosk is all these, as well as a conduit for the enterprising--not to mention resourceful--Ghanaian to make some extra money as he/she shuffles between the formal and informal sector.
A case in question is a very personable young lady whom I saw again this afternoon. Thing is, I have met her a couple of times--at a pharmacy in East Legon, dispensing medication. Alongside that, she schools at one of the private tertiary institutions; and...when she's free slips back into the formal sector by looking after her shop.
When I saw her this afternoon, I was more than mightily impressed! I know the Ghanaian lady's enterprising spirit is not to be sneezed at, but this, surely, takes the biscuit: two jobs alongside schooling?
Make your weekend a splendid one!
