Meet the Mamas
Bessie Cramer, Seamstress (Cape Coast, Ghana)
“To me, prosperity is dependent on my work. When I have many apprentices training under me, I will be prosperous.”
Meet Bessie: Producing a variety of items such as tablecloths, placemats, napkins, potholders, and headbands, Bessie has a passion for sewing and a passion for Global Mamas. “I love working with Global Mamas because I am always busy,” she said. Part of the organization since 2003, Bessie cannot choose a favorite product that she makes – she likes them all. Providing for her three kids, Bessie not only sends them to school, but also cooks for them. “I like cooking for my children, you know, because everybody likes food. Everybody!” she said. One day, Bessie hopes to move production out of her home and own a shop in Cape Coast.
“I’d rather be working than relaxing. I love being busy, sewing products, never sitting down.”
