About Me

My name is Marvin Sarfo Mensah and I am 22 years of age. I am the oldest and also the only male child of my parents' five children. I had my primary and JSS education at Glory Vel School. I furthered my education to the SHS level at KNUST SHS. At my secondary education, I was in the arts class.

After my secondary education, I have not had the opportunity to further my education as a result of financial problems. As a result of these hardships, I have worked as a laborer since I completed school. After some time, I had an idea of starting my own business, for which I bought a taxi with my savings. The unique thing about Ghanaians is that we are hospitable to people who visit us.

My Business

I offer transport services to people. Such services include transporting people from their home to their workplace, and also from their workplace back home. I also transport people to their trips and all kinds of long-distance travel. I also give my contacts to my passengers who need my service to transport them in case of any emergency, such as transporting them to hospitals.

In my country, most people do not have their own private vehicles, so most people depend on public transport as their source of transportation, which makes my work as a transporter very [well] earning.

My Business

I am in the mushroom farming business for some years now. I grow mushroom for selling and also for domestic use at home. The mushroom farming has been one of the past farming business in the country which use to receive low patronage. In recent times because of its nutritional health benefits as results of eating it, alot of demand has come to it. This has made me to increase my production every time.
