October 6, 2016 - Reacting to the results of the survey, the Managing Director of Jumia House Ghana, Akua Nyame-Mensah said, “the survey, though not scientific or extensive provides us with a glimpse of people’s current housing situation. It also gives us an idea of what they may want in terms of housing. We will continue to attempt to provide potential homeowners and renters an opportunity to describe their needs. Understanding demand will enable us to all make better decisions related to what should be built and how to define affordability.”
June 20, 2016 - When in late elementary or early middle school I was really into making greeting cards. I also tried to have my own jewellery company, [but] I think only my mom bought something. I also attempted to make footwear. I did a lot of interesting things when I was still a student. But my first real pay cheque was when working in a library at the US university I studied at.
