Vivian Seranah is a seamstress in Bogoso that joined the profession after completing her basic education. Despite her experience in the trade, her business suffered tremendously. She had little technical and financial management knowledge and could not find a way to expand her business. She had the opportunity to participate in the WAGES entrepreneurship training and in just 8 months, she saw significant improvements. She saved 413 GHC per month on average, and used these savings to acquire a knitting machine, which in turn reduced her cost and time of sending her knitting work elsewhere.
