Meet the Mamas
Florence “Kakra” Thannie, Seamstress (Cape Coast, Ghana)
“To me prosperity is buying my industrial sewing machine. It helps me to do my work fast.”
Meet Florence: A seamstress, Florence took the advice of a friend and former Mama to apply to work with Global Mamas. Since starting with the organization, Florence has perfected the design and construction of the weekend bag. She hopes to save enough money to buy more machines and expand her business in the future. In her spare time, she listens to Gospel music and dreams of building a new house where she and her husband can enjoy fufu and light soup on Sunday afternoons.
“I want to open a big shop and have apprentices and more customers and to produce more Global Mama products.”
