One of the most challenging endeavors someone can do is starting their own business.
Making fewer sales and earnings, or even worse, being unable to make any sales
This was the tale of two young Fanmilk salesmen from Ghana. They lamented the pressure they face every day just to get by.
The unknown shopkeepers claim that they go quite far to sell their goods but that all of their efforts only result in daily profits of GH 55.
Each carton of ice cream contains 25 sachets, but they only occasionally sell more than 18 sachets, they said, focusing on the profit they make each day.
“It’s even worse when it rains. I’ve only sold 18. Meaning not even one pack has sold out. So you see, walking the whole and not making anything is not good. Even the pastries that come with the ice cream don’t sell.”
“So the troubles we face in Ghana, make it unbearable. Because while struggling to make it, you get calls from your mother, father, and other family members for support.”
He added, “It is difficult to settle down for marriage,” explaining that the demands from family “makes you rethink the idea of wooing a woman not to talk of settling down with her.”
