A graduate named Rebecca Adu Konadu has started her own porridge business after being unemployed for two years.
Miriam Adu Asantewaa recently shared in a post on LinkedIn that her sister Rebecca Adu Konadu has started selling porridge after completing a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Education at Winneba.
In the post, Miriam revealed that her sister was unemployed for two years after completing national service.
After various job hunts to no avail, Rebecca realized how difficult it is to eat breakfast in her area.
With courage and determination, she decided to start selling porridge.
According to her sister, the business has been very good.
“My sister, for about 2 years after her national service, has been job hunting, but to no avail. She then realized that, at where we stay, breakfast is hard to come by, especially corn porridge, ‘Tom brown’, beverages and the likes. So she decided to venture into that aspect. And voila! Today she has started her business, and I have counted 30 people (and still counting) coming to buy from her Miriam.” Miriam added.
Adu Asantewaa stated that the intention behind her post was to add to what the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Atta, said concerning the need for graduates to venture into entrepreneurship rather, for graduates to pay close attention to some of the problems in their community and find solutions to them.
