Meet the Mamas
Cynthia Gabianu, Seamstress (Ho, Ghana)
Cynthia Gabianu started out her trade as a seamstress by working as an apprentice back in 2003. In 2008, she heard from a Peace Corps volunteer about the cooperative in Ho hiring seamstresses, and she has now been working with it ever since. The main aspect that she appreciates about working with the cooperative is that she can count on getting paid. She is the sole provider for herself and her daughter, Liticia Logo, and things were very difficult for them when Cynthia wasn’t able to depend on a steady paycheck. She hopes to run her own shop someday and send her daughter to school to become a doctor.
